Dog Bite Cases - Is the owner responsible?
In NY State, not only is the owner of a dog directly responsible for medical costs incurring as a result of a dog bite, but the owner may be criminally charged as well. Criminal charges are filed on owners who permit their dogs to bite, causing injury or death to another human being. Penalties upon owners are particularly more severe for dog owners that were aware of the dog's viciousness and dangerousness.
