Personal injuries do not result solely from slip-and-fall situations. The negligent behavior of another is more than sufficient to put one in a situation where he or she is subject to a higher risk of injury than had the negligent person acted reasonably. Dog owners, for example, have a duty to ensure that their pets do not seriously harm others. Failure to do so could land pet owners in the midst of a lawsuit, as is the case with high profile director Martin Scorsese. In such a situation, call our expert dog bite lawyer 24/7 at 617-787-3700.
A former employee of Scorsese alleges that Scorsese’s dog bit her right leg, and that while attempting to escape, she suffered severe neck and back damage such that she was not able to work for almost two years. The suit further alleges that Scorsese and his wife, Helen, had received numerous prior complaints about the dog’s potentially dangerous behavior yet failed to do anything substantial about it. Plaintiff is represented by attorney Greg Martello of Garden City, New York. Scorsese, for his part, has responded to the suits by claiming that injured employee Natara Matias was at fault for getting injured, and indeed assumed the risk.
