Poughkeepsie, NY is a dog friendly community, with various breeds walking
the streets at any given time. Unfortunately, some dogs are not properly
trained and can be dangerous to others. If while walking down Church Street,
a dog being walked by another person lunges and bites you, the owner may
be liable for your injuries. A
dog bite can become quickly infected and cause scarring and muscle atrophy. Should
you be bitten by a dog, seek immediate medical attention at a nearby medical
provider, such as Vassar Brothers Hospital or St. Francis Hospital.
The next step is calling an attorney. At Mainetti, Mainetti & O’Connor
