At the Law Offices of Jason M. Ranallo, P.C. we understand that a dog bite or attack can be an extremely painful and well as a traumatic event. The injuries are often serious, including scarring, disfigurement, nerve damage or death.
In Massachusetts, dog attacks are governed by M.G.L. c. 140 § 155. The law imposes “strict liability” on dog owners and/or keepers of the dog. The law holds an owner or keeper of a dog strictly liable if the dog causes personal injury or property damage and that the injured person was not trespassing, committing a crime or teasing the dog.
VICTIM OF A DOG BITE OR AN ANIMAL ATTACK?
Massachusetts law not only applies to dog bites but also applies to any injury that a dog causes to an individual. For example, if you are in a park or private residence and a dog jumps on you and causes you to fall and be injured, you may have a claim against the owner and/or keeper of the dog.
It is important to know, in Massachusetts owners and keeper of dogs are still liable for personal injury or property damage even if they did not have any prior knowledge that the dog would bite or cause injury.
