Dog bite at gas station

If, while I am paying for gasoline, and a dog comes out of the booth, which is owned by the gasoline attendant and bites me, Can I sue the gasoline station, or the owner himself?

For a long time, the law in New York relating to dog bites, essentially boiled down to "one free bite". This meant that you had to prove that the owner knew the dog was vicious because it had attacked someone in the past. Now that has been modified. Under the current state of the law, it may be sufficient to show that the dog showed its vicious tendencies by growling or lunging at people, or that the owner violated some statute like a leash law, and the dog was only able to get at you because of that statutory violation. Also, Courts in different parts of the state have applied the law differently on this issue, so geography may come into play. If you were injured, please call us at 1-800-535-5029 or email me at info@ajlounyinjurylaw.com to discuss the details. Please remember that this is a general overview of New York personal injury law. It does not constitute specific legal advice. It is not intended to create an attorney client relationship nor should it be relied upon without further consultation with a qualified New York personal injury lawyer.
