I’m attorney Paul Harding with the law firm Martin, Harding and Mazzotti – the Heavy Hitters – here in White Plains, 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.

Dog Bite Injuries
It’s not in every dog’s nature to be ferocious, but mixed with right company and elements, even the nicest dog can become aggressive. If you or a loved one has been bitten, it is important to gather as much information as possible about the dog’s prior behavior.
In order to file an injury claim against an owner of a dog or household pet that has attacked someone, they must prove that the owner either had knowledge of or should have had knowledge of the animal’s “vicious propensity.”
Vicious propensity covers the following:
• Aggressive barking
• In some instances, the act of restraining the pet
• The pet is a ‘guard dog’
Our dog bite lawyers recognize that any and all information regarding the aggressive behavior of the dog can be extremely helpful when filing a claim. Important information about the pet’s prior behavior that our lawyers would like to learn more about is whether 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 company. Simply the breed and size cannot determine the viciousness of the dog. For this reason, it is important to get as much information possible of prior signs of aggression.
Call our Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® White Plains dog bite lawyers to help you investigate your dog bite injury claim today. Don’t stress over the specificities and formalities of what is considered “vicious propensity”, leave it to the dog bite lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP®, The Heavy Hitters® at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® at (914) 336-5995 or toll-free, 24/7 at 1800LAW1010 (1-800-529-1010).
