Dog attacks can cause severe or even fatal injuries. A number of dogs that are commonly kept as pets are considered to be dangerous by the City of New York, including:
- Pit bulls
- Doberman pinschers
Many dogs are dangerous due to improper training or treatment. Dogs may be left chained in an apartment or yard. This often increases the dogs' agitation.
Did Your Dog Attack Happen In An Apartment Building?
In addition to the dog's owner being responsible for your injuries, there are situations where an apartment building manager or owner may be responsible as well. In cases where a dog was kept in an apartment building that has a no dog policy, and the owner or manager knew about the dog and failed to remove the animal prior to an attack, the owner or manager may be liable as well.
Children Are Frequent Victims Of Dog Bites
Children suffer a large number of dog bites for several reasons, including their inability to determine if a dog is dangerous prior to approaching it. The wounds they suffer can be especially serious. Children are often bitten in the face or neck. This can cause:
- Ongoing emotional distress
- Self-esteem issues
- Difficulties socializing
