Dog on trail pulling at leash

A dog bite can be a traumatic and painful experience. New York law holds the owner of a dog strictly liable for medical bills and related costs, should their dog bite or attack someone. In New York, dog bite cases proceed on the grounds of strict liability, meaning that the injured party must prove the owner had some knowledge of the animal’s vicious propensity. Vicious propensity can be proved by a dog’s history of growling, nipping, or snapping at people or by acting in some manner that demonstrates its intent to harm. Dog bites often result in both physical and emotional harm and often result in significant scarring.
