Dog Bite Lawyer In Queens

Bitten? We Can Help!

Each year, millions of innocent people are seriously injured as a result of dog bites and attacks. The physical injuries are not the only painful consequences of a dog bite. The emotional damage or loss of income can be painful as well. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a dog bite, the dog owner may be held accountable.

At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, our Queens dog bite lawyers understand the extent of injuries that just one bite or attack can have. We have the experience and knowledge to protect your legal rights and get you the maximum compensation that you deserve. Our law firm recovered $750,000 for a girl who was bitten by a dog, which was the largest amount recovered in New York State in 2010.

New York Dog Bite Law

New York State has a “one bite rule.” Under this law, a dog may be allowed one mistake. In other words, the owner may not be held responsible for the dog’s first bite or injury to another person, unless the owner was negligent in his or her actions to control the dog, etc.

Examples of dangerous propensity include:

  • The dog has a tendency to snap at others
  • The owner often tells people his dog is an attack dog
  • The dog owner cautions others that his dog bites
  • The dog wears a muzzle
