I’m attorney Paul Harding with the law firm Martin, Harding and Mazzotti – the Heavy Hitters – here in Syracuse, New York. Everyday across the country almost one hundred thousand people are injured. Many of these injuries are severe enough to result in hospitalization or even death.
The unfortunate truth is that a number of these cases are caused by someone else’s negligence. The consequence of this negligence may be a personal injury case.
But what exactly is a personal injury case?
Personal injury cases can include – automobile wrecks, dog bites, defective products, medical malpractice, premises liability and many other case types.
If someone else’s negligence has caused you harm, you have the right to seek compensation, a right that should not be ignored.

Dog Bite Injuries
Although most dogs are friendly and good-natured, we also know that dogs are protective which can often lead them to act in unpredictable ways. Dogs can be aggressive for a number of reasons, and if you have been a victim of a dog bite, you should seek medical assistance immediately. Our Syracuse dog bite injury attorneys have experience handling these cases. In order to file a claim against an owner of a dog or other household pet that has attacked someone, you must be able to prove that the pet’s owner had knowledge of or should have known the animal has “vicious propensity.”
Vicious propensity covers the following:
- Aggressive barking
- In some instances, the act of restraining the pet
- The pet is a ‘guard dog’
Relevant information our lawyers look to uncover in these cases includes; if the dog has bitten, chased or attacked in the past, if the owner has had to use a muzzle on the dog, or keep it locked up around unfamiliar people. In order to build a successful case, it is important to get as much information possible about prior signs of aggression. Having witnesses that have seen the dog show aggression will aid in issuing a claim.

The Department of Education, the Public Schools Athletic League, and the Parks Department were found liable due to improper training, a lack of supervision from coaches, and being unprepared for the scrimmage in which the injury occurred.
