Animal Attacks

Taunton, Massachusetts, Dog Bite Lawyers

Dog bites can leave lasting physical and emotional scars. At the Taunton, Massachusetts Law Offices of Aleixo and Murray P.C., our lawyers offer a free initial consultation for victims of dog bites and other animal attacks to explain your rights to compensation.

If a loved one or family member is attacked by a Rottweiler, German shepherd, Pitt bull, security dog, or any type of dog, under Massachusetts law, the owner of the dog is automatically liable for injuries suffered from bites or attacks. This means that you do not have to prove the owner of the dog was negligent in causing your injury. The owner of the dog cannot use any defenses, and the judge will instruct the jury that they must find in favor of the injured person. Another name for this law is strict liability. The only question to be decided in any dog bite case is how much compensation you deserve for your injury.

From our experience representing injured people, our lawyers understand how insurance companies value dog bite cases. This knowledge helps us obtain the maximum recovery for you. Our lawyers will use a professional photographer to highlight the injury. We will also have your injury evaluated by a plastic surgeon to determine if plastic surgery can eliminate the scar. Plastic surgery can usually reduce scars from dog bites but cannot eliminate them entirely.

To receive the maximum compensation in any dog bite case, your attorney has to be willing to try it. Trying cases is something the Law Offices of Aleixo and Murray has done successfully, time and time again, for clients in Taunton and surrounding communities such as Brockton, Dighton, Easton, Fall River, Franklin, Lakeville, Middleboro, New Bedford, Norton, and Raynham. We handle all dog bite cases on a contingency fee basis, which means there are no attorneys’ fees unless we make a recovery for you.
