Dog serve an important role in human society, providing companionship, entertainment, and valuable assistance to disabled individuals.

Understanding Liability in Dog Bite Cases
In cases in which a dog bites someone and causes injury, New York law uses a combination of legal principles called "strict liability" and "negligence". This means that the dog’s owner is responsible for any medical bills stemming from his or her dog's biting someone, even if he or she had made reasonable attempts to restrain and control the animal before the injury occurred. For costs that are not related to medical expenses, the owner must have failed to display reasonable care to control the dog in order to be held liable. This legal standard has been coined the "one bite rule" because once a dog has bitten someone its owner should be aware that the dog has the propensity toward violence.
