New York dog bites and leash law
New York law provides that dog owners be held liable for a dog attack if they knew of a “vicious propensity.” Our attorney will investigate your case and seek to determine whether the dog had a prior history of attacks and whether the owner had reason to believe that the animal was dangerous. Even an animal that snarls, barks, growls or is playfully jumping at strangers could be considered a threat. Contact us for an immediate consultation on your case or claim.
