Dog Bite Lawyer Serving
BITE BACK WITH A DOG BITE LAWYER SERVING WESTWOOD, MA
Dogs are man’s best friend – except when they’re biting the hands that feed them. Usually, when a dog bites a person, it’s not the dog’s fault. Instead, the responsibility lies with the dog’s owner for failing to train or restrain them. That’s why Massachusetts personal injury law allows victims to sue a dog’s owner over a dog bite. These laws allow victims of dog bite attacks to hire lawyers and bring their case to court. Dog bite attacks are governed by personal injury law, so you should choose attorneys with specific experience in this field. If you need a lawyer who is experienced in dog bite injury cases in the Westwood, MA area, call attorney William Crowley. Attorney Crowley has been fighting for his clients’ rights against nearly impossible odds since the begging of his career. In 1986, he was an attorney for the plaintiffs in a famous civil case called Anne Anderson v. Cryovac. Attorney Crowley and his team represented eight families that had developed leukemia from toxins released into their drinking water by three companies. After a drawn-out legal battle, attorney Crowley’s persistence and determination led to the companies settling with the families out of court.

WHY YOU NEED A DOG ATTACK LAWYER
Dog bite statistics are relatively high. Every year, dogs bite nearly 5 million Americans. Out of those, about 800,000 victims require medical care. That translates to about one dog bite in 70 people in the US every year. Common injuries from dog bites include:
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue damage
- Diseases including rabies
Because of these injuries, there are numerous medical complications that can arise from dog bites. For example, dog bite injuries are particularly prone to infection and may require expensive medical treatment to address. Even if your wound doesn’t seem severe, you should still visit a doctor because of the risk of diseases. Dog bite injuries can require anything a few stitches to intense medical treatments like rabies shots, and, while your insurance may cover some of it, there’s a large chance you’ll still have some major expenses.
In addition, dog bites can be a source of deep puncture wounds. These injuries are the result of a dog’s canine tooth punching deep into a human’s skin. Dog’s mouths are breeding grounds for bacteria, and their teeth can inject diseases and infection so deeply into a person’s skin that they can’t be treated with surface-level solutions like rubbing alcohol or soap and require antibiotic drugs.
If you or a member of your family received a wound from a dog bite or attack, an attorney like William Crowley may be able to help you. Partnering with dog bite attorneys like him can help you vastly improve your situation.
MASSACHUSETTS DOG BITE LAW
Fortunately for victims, Massachusetts has strict dog bite liability laws. A dog owner will be liable for the damage inflicted by his pet unless the victim was trespassing on the owner’s property or abusing the dog. Also, the law assumes that children under the age of seven are always the victims in a dog attack situation regardless of their circumstances. In these scenarios, the burden of proof is on the dog owner, meaning they must decisively disprove the victim’s accusations.
If you have any questions about whether your scenario constitutes a dog bite attack under Massachusetts state law, consult a lawyer. Dog bite lawyers can help you better understand the complexities of your situation and provide you with representation.
