Everybody loves those warm, furry, cuddly creatures known as dogs, and a majority of people have adopted dogs to live in their homes with them as part of the family unit. They’re our companions through thick and thin, and they give us unconditional love and friendship. We all know that dogs, in general, are loyal, playful, comforting, and fun to interact with and be around. But sometimes, they bite, and when this happens there is the risk of injury to the victim as a result of a dog bite incident. Dogs can inflict serious injury on a victim since their powerful jaws can cause scarring, blood loss, muscle or nerve damage and other injuries that can involve expensive or painful medical treatment. When this happens, it’s time to learn about how a New York dog bite lawyer can help a dog bite victim to recover a fair compensation for the loss. Of course, you can’t sue the dog itself if you’ve been bitten or injured by a canine, but you may be able to sue its owner, who is legally liable for the action of the dog at all times. The legal professionals at the Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell & Associates will evaluate your dog bite case, to determine how best to get the compensation for your injuries that you need and deserve in these types of cases.
