Types of Dog Bite Injuries My Law Office Handles

While most dogs are friendly and understand their order “in the pack,” some events can cause them to act out of character. Other dogs are just naturally aggressive and consistently on guard to attack anyone in their path.It is for this reason that dog owners must keep their pets restrained securely behind a fence or on a leash, whether at home or in a public setting. The injuries resulting from dog bites and attacks can range in severity from puncture wounds to loss of life.

Injuries most commonly reported with dog bite injuries include:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Lacerations
  • Temporary or permanent nerve damage

New Mexico Has Laws to Protect Dog Bite Injury Victims

New Mexico has what is known as a “one bite” rule. This law places the focus on the owner’s knowledge of the dog’s behavior. I will go after the owner to hold them accountable for your injuries under this doctrine by proving that the dog had already bitten someone else, has acted aggressively in other ways, or that the owner should have known that the dog was at risk for biting other people.

In addition to the one-bite rule, negligence also plays a role in dog bite injury cases. Whether a dog acted aggressively in previous instances, the owner has a duty of care to ensure that the dog is adequately restrained behind a fence or leash. I will work with you to understand the circumstances of your case as applicable under New Mexico law and go after the fair compensation you deserve for your injuries.
