Dog Bite Negligence & Liability

When filing a dog bite claim, there are several factors to consider in how to pursue compensation and determining what injury costs can be addressed. New York law uses a combination of liability and negligence to evaluate dog bite injuries and understanding how both are recognized is key to the success of your claim.

New York dog bite liability and negligence breaks down as follows:

  • Liability. Dog owners are strictly liable for medical costs if their dog bites or injuries another person. To prove this liability, the dog must be determined "dangerous." For a dog to be dangerous, it must attack without provocation, or behave in a way that could reasonably be considered threatening.
  • Negligence. To pursue other compensation, injury victims must prove the owner was negligent. New York has a "one bite" rule, meaning that victims have to prove that the dog in question has behaved dangerously in the past, so that the owner should have reasonably known that the dog could be harmful and failed to take appropriate measures to protect other people.
