Types of Personal Injury Cases in Roosevelt
Dog Bite Injuries in Roosevelt
Some dogs are friendly, faithful companions, while others are known to be aggressive. In any event, being injured in a dog bite attack is a traumatic experience. In Roosevelt, the owner or custodian of a dangerous dog can be held strictly liable for injuries caused by a dog bite attack.
A dangerous dog is one that attacks, injures or kills a person without justification or displays aggressive behavior that places a persona in reasonable fear of imminent harm.
A dog owner can also be held legally responsible for injuries caused by a dog that is not considered dangerous if it can be shown that the owner knew, or should have known, that the dog might bite someone. In either case, it takes a highly skilled dog bite injury attorney who understands New York complicated dog bite laws to pursue a successful claim. If you or your child has been injured in a dog attack in Roosevelt, we can help you obtain substantial compensation for the physical and emotional harm you have endured.
Slip and Fall Accidents in Roosevelt
Slip and fall accidents are common in Roosevelt, often due to wet, icy or slippery surfaces, broken stairs, uneven flooring, raised or cracked sidewalks, and countless other hazards.
If you were injured in a slip and fall accident you may have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit. Premises liability arises when a property owner’s failure to maintain his or her property results in a personal injury. To have a successful claim, you must be able to show that the owner knew, or should have known about the hazard, failed to correct it and that you sustained an injury that resulted in damages, such as lost wages, medical expenses and pain and suffering.
