When an owner of an animal does not have insurance, the situation can be a little more tricky. Certainly you need the right firm to be able to investigate and determine whether or not there’s any insurance coverage that’s in place. In the event that there is no insurance coverage in place, then you would typically be going after the owner of the animal and requiring them to pay out of their own pockets for any damages sustained by our clients.

If you’ve been attacked by a dog, you deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering. At The Matera Law Firm, we have over 25 years of experience helping people when they need it most. That commitment has allowed us to generate a record of success that includes obtaining millions of dollars for our clients injured as a result of a dog bite in New York.
