While you cannot hold a dog financially responsible, you can hold its owner liable for the harm it caused. This liability means the owner may be responsible for paying for your medical treatment, such as:
Not all dog attacks involve bites. In fact, New York law uses the term “attack” instead of “bite,” allowing victims of other injuries to take action (NY AGM § 123). For example, if you were knocked over by an aggressive dog and broke a bone or hurt your head, you can pursue compensation.
We can also pursue any income that was lost during your recovery. If you are left permanently unable to return to your job in the same capacity, damages can account for this income loss as well. Other forms of revenue may also be eligible for reimbursement, such as commissions and side jobs.

After a dog bite or scratch, the biggest concern may not be the injury but the infection it can cause. Dogs can carry:
You do not have to be infected for expenses associated with potential infection to be reimbursed. The cost of tetanus or rabies shots as a preventative measure can be included.
If you do suffer from an infection, your expenses are considered part of the original injury.

These complications are a consequence of the attack and, therefore, a consequence of negligence.
Many people are not aware that most dog bites occur in homes — 80.2% in fact, according to a Heliyon study. Perhaps you were hurt by an animal you knew or one owned by a friend. That familiarity can make your experience particularly traumatic.
