Dog Bites a Significant Issue

According to the American Humane Society:
    * 800,000 people require medical treatment from dog attacks each year

  1. * 70% of fatal dog bites occur among children under 10 years old
  2. * The insurance industry pays more than $1 billion in dog bite claims every year

What does this mean for me?
It means that you could receive compensation if you or a loved one was attacked by a violent dog.  However, insurance companies know dog bite laws and their loopholes and will use them to try to avoid paying you for your injuries. This is why you need a skilled dog bite attorney with years of success against the tactics of insurance companies. The attorneys of Figeroux & Associates are well versed in New York dog attack laws. We will passionately advocate to protect your rights.

Compensation for Your Injuries
The legal responsibility of the pet owner is usually determined by whether the dog was considered "dangerous" before the attack. If we can prove the dog was already known to be vicious, we can also help you recover compensation for:

  1. Medical Costs
  2. Future Treatment
  3. Lost Income
  4. Counseling
  5. Physical and Emotional Harm
  6. Punitive Damages

Proving that a dog was known to be dangerous before it attacked you is difficult and complicated. You need an attorney who is extremely knowledgeable about dog bite laws in your area. You must also hire a firm with the resources to rigorously investigate all aspects of the attack, to collect evidence related to the claim and to obtain expert testimony on your behalf. Even if the dog was not yet considered dangerous, we will still fight to hold the pet owner accountable for your medical costs. Founded more than 15 years ago and established as a leading personal injury firm in New York, Figeroux & Associates is the law firm for you.

Hiring the right attorney will speed up this process as well as ensure that you receive the maximum possible compensation.
