Dog Bites

Our Brockton Dog Bite Injury Lawyers have recovered some of the largest settlements for dog bite incidents to our clients. If you are bit or injured by a dog, state law strictly requires the owner or insurance company to compensate you with few exceptions. These rare exceptions include trespassing, teasing or tormenting the dog, or being bit while you were the “keeper of the dog” meaning in charge or responsible for the care of the dog.

Attorney David Reservitz has handled dozens of dog bite cases in Brockton, some very serious. He is considered an expert in the field and has been asked to lecture other attorneys from Brockton and Plymouth County on this topic.

Brockton, the City of Champions, has many dogs. One of the more common breeds of dogs in the city is Terriers including Pitbull terriers. While these breeds can be very sweet and lovable, they can also be dangerous. Certain genetic characteristics of these breeds can cause their bites to be very significant resulting in serious injury.

In fact, there are certain dog breeds that common household insurers will exclude from coverage. This exclusion often applies to Pitbull’s, Rottweilers, German Shepard’s, Akita, Chow and other large breeds. The insurers have developed this list based on past statistical history of bites as well as the severity. Unfortunately half of the dog bite victims are children. Most of them are bitten on the face. This can be traumatic for the children and their parents. Some of the serious dog bite injuries are puncture wounds, nerve damage and scarring.

David Reservitz, an experienced Dog Bite Lawyer will quickly identify a responsible party and, more importantly, a responsible Insurer. In cities like Brockton, this can be challenge when the dog owner is an apartment renter and not a homeowner. Many renters do not purchase apartment insurance to cover their dogs and the claim must be directed at the Landlord. These claims require specific strategies and evidence to satisfy the required burden.
