All dogs have the potential to be vicious if not well-trained, abused, underfed, or otherwise not properly taken care of. Dog trained to be guard dogs should be fenced in to prevent unsuspecting children from petting them. Likewise, all animals should be properly enclosed to prevent them from escaping. The classification of “dangerous dog” is therefore given to an animal who is unattended, unleashed, and acting viciously.
When you or your loved one have been injured due to a dog bite or attack, seek the legal attention you need after you receive medical care. Call our New York dog bite lawyer at (800) 599-5950 to schedule your free initial consultation.
