Understanding New York Dog Bite Liability: Get in Touch for Assistance

In New York, the law holds dog owners responsible for any damages caused by their dog biting someone without provocation. This applies when the person is on public property or lawfully on private property, including the owner’s property. The owner’s awareness of the dog’s past behavior or viciousness doesn’t affect this liability.

A person is considered lawfully on the private property of the dog owner if they are there for reasons imposed by state laws, laws of the United States, or postal regulations. This includes being an invitee or licensee of the person lawfully in possession of the property. However, if someone enters the premises for an unlawful or criminal act, this law doesn’t apply.
