Dog Bites

Dog Bites in New Mexico

Let Our Albuquerque Personal Injury Lawyer Help You

Many people consider dogs as man’s best friend. However, they still have a propensity to attack and cause both physical and psychological injuries. If you were recently bitten or attacked by a dog, you may be able to hold the dog owner liable for the harm caused by their canine companion.

With more than a decade of experience, The Romero Law Firm, P.A. understands what it takes to recover your entitled compensation. Our Albuquerque personal injury lawyer is familiar with the policies and conditions of homeowner’s insurance policies and general umbrella insurance to find solutions for obtaining monetary damages for our clients’ injuries.

New Mexico Dog Bite Laws

New Mexico does not have specific dog bit statutes; however, a dog owner is liable for a person’s injuries when they knew the dog was vicious or they knew of a previous incident where the dog had demonstrated vicious behavior. If the dog owner says they did not know that their dog was vicious, the court will assess whether they should have known.

Victims of dog bites and attacks are not only compensated for their medical expenses, but can be compensated for psychological trauma and counseling, permanent and temporary disability, loss wages, plastic surgery to correct scarring, and pain and suffering. At times, punitive damages may be awarded if the dog owner was extraordinarily negligent. Our Albuquerque personal injury lawyer can thoroughly review your case and determine all of your legal options to develop an effective case strategy for you.
