Most dogs are loving and great companions. Unfortunately some dogs present a risk to the public, and to small children in particular. The lawyers at James Morris Law have successfully handled a great number of dog bite lawsuits, including the case discussed in the attached video involving a very young girl who suffered severe facial lacerations resulting in scarring when attacked by a neighbor’s dog. We were able to investigate the laws of New York and develop the necessary proof of the dog’s history of exhibiting a vicious propensity in this dog bite lawsuit.
A significant settlement was achieved on the child’s behalf to provide funds for her future medical care due to her dog injures, and to assist with college costs. Past results do not guarantee similar outcomes. The video addresses some of the important issues in handling dog bite cases.
