How do I know if I have a Good Dog Bite Case?

The law in New York State to dog bite cases indicates that to be successful you must prove that the dog had viscous propensity.  Doing that is not easy, unless you know the dog.

Even though you might be injured, if you can learn the name of the dog, owner of the dog, or any witnesses who saw you get bit and obtain the name, address and phone number. The New York City department of health is a place that we could learn more if they have been informed about a particular dog biting someone before you.

Another interesting fact is that if you walked by someone’s property and they have a sign that says “beware of dog” they’re letting you know that they have a dog that they believe has viscous propensity.  So even if the dog didn’t bite somebody before you, the owner having that sign beware of dog will go a long way to making a successful dog bite case.
