They say that “Man Bites Dog” is a real attention-grabbing headline and a twist on a tired old story, but the fact is dogs, and by extension, their owners, are responsible for many common and preventable injuries every day. It’s an old-fashioned story but one that’s not without serious and drastic consequences. If you, or a loved one, has suffered a dog bite injury, you can find the support you need through a Boston injury lawyer from the firm of Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C. Whether you are looking for accident assistance or need a premises liability lawyer, we are here to assist you.
It is a very simple task to keep a dog under control. There are many methods that have proven effective for years upon years. There is no acceptable excuse for someone’s pet to savage an individual. The fault lies with the owner, not the animal, and there is no situation in which it’s okay to not secure an animal. Responsible pet owners do this for more than just the protection of the public; they do it to ensure their beloved pet is safe as well. However, some people seem to feel that responsibility does not apply to them, and unfortunate incidents can occur. If you’ve had a run-in with a dangerous dog and need support from a Boston personal injury law firm, rest assured that full and complete advocacy is ready for you.
Massachusetts dog bite law states:
“If any dog shall do any damage to either the body or property of any person, the owner or keeper, or if the owner or keeper be a minor, the parent or guardian of such minor, shall be liable for such damage, unless such damage shall have been occasioned to the body or property of a person who, at the time such damage was sustained, was committing a trespass or other tort, or was teasing, tormenting or abusing such dog [MGL Chapter 140, Section 155].”
