Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer on Your Neighbor’s Dog Knocking Over Your Child

As an experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer, I am often asked what to do if your neighbor’s dog knocked over your child causing injury.

  • People may think New York law awards compensation for injuries caused by a dog only in case of a bite; however, a dog owner can be held responsible for injuries even there was no bite.
  • To be successful in such cases, the dog must have demonstrated a propensity for the injury-causing behavior such as chasing people – causing them to run, fall, and become injured with no direct contact with the dog.
  • The owner of a dog can be held responsible for injuries if it can be shown that the dog had a propensity for certain behaviors, and such propensities can be demonstrated in several ways.

Did your neighbor’s dog knock over your child causing injury?  Contact dedicated Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer Robert Maranto for guidance.

  • I was offered 0 on a low impact accident. After long litigation I was offered 100,000 which mr maranto rejected. I ended up with 235,000. I would definately use this firm again.

  • So far, so good! This law office appears to have it's stuff together. And I like the fact that they don't have to advertise like the the the other 2 law firms with the 444444 and the 888888 numbers which tells me they get a lot of word of mouth advertising..the best kind. Also I called one of the 444 and/or 888 numbers and the attorney was very short and rude. After my case I will do a follow up to let you all know how my complete experience was.
