I Was Bitten by a Dog
In Massachusetts, dogs do not get “one free bite.” Furthermore, it is not necessary for someone injured by a dog to prove negligence on the part of a dog owner. Under ordinary circumstances, you will be entitled to compensation through homeowners insurance or other sources belonging to the dog’s owner after a dog bite injury.

When The Dog Owner Is A Friend Or Relative
Some people hesitate to sue a friend or relative after being bitten by a dog. It is important to realize that insurance policies are designed to act as safety nets to protect us all. Your friend or relative is likely to be relieved that you will be taken care of through a claim or lawsuit aimed at getting the resources of his or her insurance policies.
