Dog bites can occur without warning, or provocation in a variety of circumstances. Dog bites can vary in severity, and can result in hospitalization, disease, or infection.
Chapter 140, Section 155 of the Massachusetts General Laws (“G.L.”) establishes liability against a dog owner if:
(1) the dog causes personal injury or property damage; AND
(2) the injured person was not trespassing, committing another tort, or provoking the dog.
If you have been injured by a dog, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and for any permanent medical issues the injury has caused.
