CALL (800) 863-5312 to talk to one of our Roswell dog bite lawyers today

Since most dogs (roughly 98.5% each year) do not attack people, it is startling to learn that there are 100 dog attacks in the United States each hour. Perhaps it is even more unsettling that more than 50% of those attacked are children. Even if your attitude towards dogs has not changed since you or your loved one were attacked, you still deserve to receive compensation from the dog owner for your injuries. Our Roswell dog bite lawyers can help you with that. Each dog bite case will be different, with circumstances varying depending on whether the victim knew the owner, whether the parties were in public, and so on.

If a dog attacked you in New Mexico, talk to a Zinda Law Group Roswell injury lawyer in a free consultation today at (800) 863-5312.

Dog bite laws in New Mexico

Some states have statutes that categorize dog bite cases based on location (public versus private), the seriousness of the injury, or the owner’s knowledge of a dog’s propensity to bite. However, New Mexico does not have a statute to address dog bite injuries. Instead, this area is governed by common law.

What is Common Law?

Common law is law that is created by judicial court decisions instead of by the legislators. It is not codified like statutes, but it is just as binding as statutes. Much of personal injury law has developed through common law, and each state has its own common law rules for specific parts of personal injury law.

What Common Law Governs Dog Bites in Roswell, New Mexico?

In New Mexico, there are two basic theories of common law under which dog bite victims may sue. The first is negligence, and the second is strict liability. Negligence is an appropriate claim against a dog owner when the dog owner does not have knowledge of the dog’s vicious propensities, or tendency to bite or attack. Strict liability is appropriate when the dog owner knows or should have known about the dog’s vicious propensities.

Dog Bite CTA


Many personal injuries happen because of the negligence of one party; if a dog owner did not know about his or her dog’s vicious propensities, then negligence is likely the appropriate route for the victim to take. Whenever one party owes another party a duty of care, a negligence claim can arise from a breach of that duty. The elements of a negligence claim for a dog bite include the following:

  • The dog owner owed the victim a duty of care.
  • The dog owner breached the standard of the duty of care.
  • The victim’s injury is a type for which he or she can claim compensation.
  • The dog owner’s breach of duty caused the victim’s injury.

The Duty of Care

The duty of care that one party owes another varies based on the circumstances; for example, a doctor owes a patient a duty of care comparable to the care that the average doctor in the same field and same geographical area would provide to a patient. A shopkeeper owes a customer a duty of care to clean up spills or warn customers of spills within an appropriate amount of time to prevent customers from the foreseeable injury of a slip and fall. A dog owner at a park owes a duty of care to other park patrons to keep his or her dog leashed according to the rules and customs of the park.

Breach of the Duty of Care

The person who owes the other person a duty of care breaches that duty of care when he or she fails to comply with the standard. Breaching doctors might use outdated techniques that make injuries to patients more likely; breaching shopkeepers might mop an aisle of the store and not place a “wet floor” sign. Breaching dog owners might ignore park rules and allow their dogs to freely interact with other people and animals at the park.

The Victim’s Injury

Most physical injuries, such as having a surgical tool left in your body after surgery, breaking your hip from slipping on a wet floor, or having your skin ripped open by a dog bite, are the types for which you can receive compensation. The injury the victim receives must be caused by the defendant’s breach of duty.

Strict Liability

In typical strict liability cases that do not have to do with dog bites, the defendant’s intent does not matter for the outcome of the case. While the defendant’s intent still does not matter for dog bite cases, the defendant’s knowledge does. That is, even if the defendant took precautions to prevent his or her dog from attacking, the dog owner could be held strictly liable for the injury if he or she knew or should have known about the dog’s propensity to bite.

The “scienter” principle for dog bite law, sometimes called the “one bite rule,” is what sets strict liability apart from negligence in dog bite cases. If a dog bite victim sues under strict liability, he or she has the burden of proof to show that the owner knew or should have known that the dog had a vicious propensity. A spouse’s knowledge about a dog’s vicious propensity is often sufficient to show that the other spouse knew of the vicious propensity.

If the dog owner did not know or have any reason to know that the dog would attack—for example, there was no prior history of attacks—then the victim would have a negligence claim. You will likely know more about what the dog owner knows if the dog owner is your friend or a member of your extended family.

Defenses that the dog owner could raise

The main defenses that a dog owner can raise in most states is trespass and provocation. Trespass occurs when someone who was not invited enters onto the owner’s private property. Often there is immunity for municipal employees who are there in performance of a duty imposed by the law.

The dog owner could also raise the defense that you provoked the dog, but sometimes there is an extra requirement for the provocation defense. In some states, the dog owner must show both that the victim provoked the dog and that the victim knew about the dog’s vicious propensities.


Should I find Roswell dog bite lawyers near me?

A Roswell injury lawyer will know how to interpret the common law for dog bite injuries in New Mexico. A dog bite victim needs someone at his or her side to help not only with the determination of the type of claim you should file, but also with the details of where to file and when. Researching on your own is especially difficult for common law claims, since the law is not clearly stated in a statute; a person arguing a dog bite claim in New Mexico must be able to interpret cases in a way that is both in keeping with the law and favorable to his or her case.

An attorney already knows about the important cases for dog bite litigation and can take the burden of research from you. When you have an experienced advocate at your side, you know that you are not sinking more energy and money into your claim than the amount you could receive in compensation.

If you can provide the lawyer with the information about the owner of the dog who bit you, the lawyer can help you with the investigative work from there by contacting the dog owner and the dog owner’s lawyer. Next, your attorney can help you negotiate a settlement with the defendant or his insurance. Rather than allow the other side to poke holes in your case, you can have your advocate fight in your case.

when should i file my complaint?

In order to make sure your dog bite claim is good, you will have to comply with the specific court rules. Potentially one of the most devastating rules to an otherwise valid complaint is the statute of limitations.

The statute of limitations defines how long the plaintiff has to file a complaint after the event that caused the injury takes place. New Mexico’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years. That means that from the day you were bitten, you have three years to organize enough information to file your claim.

Note that you do not need to have all of your evidence ahead of time before you file your claim. You will have time to do that in the investigative and information-gathering stage of litigation called discovery. Discovery usually takes the longest of any of the stages of litigation in a claim.

what kind of compensation can I receive?

The most accurate estimate of the amount of compensation you could receive will come from a consultation with a dog bite lawyer. A dog bite attorney near you who has argued and settled many cases like yours should be able to give you an idea of the amount of compensation you should expect.

The amount of compensation will depend on the kind of injury you received: the more medical treatment you required, the more compensation you will likely be entitled to. Of course, not all injuries from dog bites are only physical. You could also suffer psychological injuries that require treatment.

Physical injuries and mental injuries are covered economic and non-economic damages, eligible for possible compensation. Economic damages include your cost of treatment and your missed wages from time off of work. Noneconomic damages are more abstract in nature, covering your mental suffering from the attack itself, mental suffering from remembering the attack, and loss of future earning capacity because of a physical injury.

what if I was bitten by a bully breed?

While there are common misconceptions about which dog breeds are more aggressive than others, the truth is that some dogs simply cause more damage than others when they bite. One study shows that many people do not know which breed bit them, but breeds that are often mentioned as culprits by their victims are pit bull, mixed breed, German shepherd, terrier, and rottweiler.

Dogs also behave in accordance with the way they have been trained or treated. If a dog has been trained to attack trespassers, that might explain the reason for its attack. Alternatively, a dog that has been abused by humans might bite out of fear.

I had the privilege of working with Zinda Law Group recently and was thoroughly impressed with the level of service and support they provided. When we began, I had reservations about the likelihood of reaching a settlement, but the team's professionalism, intelligence, and dedication quickly put those doubts to rest. They went above and beyond to ensure that I was informed and comfortable throughout the process, and their hard work and strong advocacy ultimately led to a successful outcome. I cannot thank Zinda Law Group and their staff enough for their exceptional service and support, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance. Their commitment to their clients and their willingness to fight for what's right truly sets them apart. In short, I give them a rating of five stars for their outstanding work.
Zinda Law Group is amazing! My husband was in an accident and they made the process super easy and hassle free. They took care of everything, we are so appreciative for them! They exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be telling everyone we know about them. Thank you Zinda Law for everything!
Zinda Law Group is an amazing firm! My case was not without its challenges, but they handled it all in stride. They kept me up to date, kept me informed every step of the way, and ensured I understood the process and all of my options. Burgess, Ryan and their extremely capable staff of Paralegals made a very challenging process as painless as possible. They were kind, compassionate, and patient, and just a real pleasure to work with. I would, and will, recommend them highly to anyone needing an attorney.

Zinda law group made me feel comfortable and I trusted them to fight for me. The trust was well placed! Thank Yous, I appreciate all that Yous done for me and my family!!
I’ve had such a great experience with Zinda law group! They’ve handled everything relatively quickly and professionally. They really have made my life a lot easier. I recommend anyone dealing with auto accidents (or similarly) to Zinda Law group.I felt I was very important to them and that my feelings and thoughts were validated. They treated me with much care and respect, not like “just another client”. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.

Very accommodating they work extremely hard to make sure that you are compensated from start to finish they made it happen and made a rough time a lot smoother than I could of ever imagined thank you all for everything if you are looking for a lawyer that goes above beyond look no further Michael will get you taken care of!
Zinda Law did an excellent job for us from start to finish. They communicated clearly and their staff was great! My son Nic was in a car accident and had an injury to his eye. Zinda Law took care of everything start to finish and obtained the maximum amount possible from insurance for his injury.
I am so glad I called Zinda law group. being hit by a drink driver was the worst experience of my life physically and emotionally. As soon as I reached out they got the ball rolling with all my medical needs. They were in contact with all of my appointments and made my recovery as smooth as possible. I would definitely without a doubt recommend them. A huge shout out to Shivangi for taking over and fighting for what my family and I deserved.
My experience with Zinda Law Group has been OUTSTANDING! Big shoutout to Joe Caputo and his team!I was the passenger in a terrible car accident that left me needing medical attention. The person at faults insurance company reassured me that my medical bills would be taken care of. However, that was not the case. I started receiving multiple calls from debt collectors, and bill after bill by mail. The driver’s insurance company no longer returned my calls, and emails went unanswered. I was so stressed and over my head with how to handle the situation. It was time to call the pros! As soon as I made the call to Zinda Law Group, Joe and his team I were on it! I no longer received calls from debt collectors, so I knew action was taken immediately. I was informed every step of the way, and every call/email was answered. Had I called sooner, I would have never gone through all that stress. I was treated like a friend, not just a client.Thank you Zinda Law Group!
I hired Zinda for a crazy situation involving an 18 wheeler where an object flew off a trailer and blasted through my windshield.I reached out to Zinda and spoke with Michael Cupero, my attorney at Zinda, after the accident once I realized this is affecting my day to day life in a significant way (PTSD from a "Final Destination" type of incident) and Michael was nothing short of fantastic through the entire process.The Zinda team, including Michael and Mary-Catherine Holt and several others, guided me through the entire process from initial settlement offers, filing the lawsuit, depositions, the whole 9.They listened to my concerns, provided clarity and perspective when needed, and not once did I feel that my best interest was not at the forefront of their actions and behavior through my experience as a client.Thank you Michael, Mary-Catherine and Zinda!If you want a team that will treat you with professionalism, respect, and understanding then do yourself a favor and reach out to Zinda!
Extremely professional and communicative . They explained the process as we went along and made it very clear weighting pros and cons. They understood my pain and my worries but kept their expertise always on the top of things finding elements for me to win my case. I am thankful to have had Zinda Law Group to support me during those two years as it finalized and I can keep on living.
My experience with Zinda law group has been wonderful from start to finish. Natasha and Emily explained everything very well and answered any questions I had, communicated well throughout the whole process , and handled the case very professionally, they worked very hard on my case I would definitely highly recommend to friends and family.
I found myself in a situation where I needed legal representation. After looking over reviews in the area, I decided to contact Natasha at Zinda law group in the hopes that she could represent me . Natasha put me at ease with her responsiveness and her ability to accommodate my last minute needs. I had no idea what to expect. It felt like a wave of relief knowing that you're working with a professional that knows what she's doing, and knows how to get things done quickly and efficiently. I appreciate the time and attention that Natasha put into my case. I hope I won't be needing their services again in the future, but I would absolutely contact them again if I do. Thanks again
I am very satisfied with the service and the outcome of my case.Since the first phone call, and every step of the way until the end, Zinda Law was on top of every detail pertaining to my auto accident case.The case is now closed, and looking back, they made every step of the process easy and manageable. They were very thorough in explaining the different scenarios, and extremely transparent with all the possible outcomes.Thank you to every person who aided in the success of my case, all of whom were exceptional in their tasks and working as a team.
The Zinda Law Group was outstanding in helping me with my aunts case. My two Attorneys Neil and Shivangi were very compassionate, kind, eager to help, and really listen carefully and attentively to my case about my aunt. My aunt got hit by a driver while crossing the street and killed. I went after the guys insurance; although, this doesn't bring back my aunt, but allows for this not to happen to other people like this in her case. These attorneys worked very hard and efficiently to bring the justice that they saw fit. When I had a question they explained in terms I understood and not above and beyond me. I appreciate it when people can come down to my level and not intimidate and use trepidation on someone in feeling like they are the fly while they're the spider waiting for the right moment for the fly to walk into its web.Neil and Shivangi always whenever they called asked me how I was at the beginning of our conversations and is there anything I needed at the end of each call. Each call they made to me, was made very professional, personable and felt heart felt as if you were part of the family. At the end of each subject matter they always asked, "Do you have any questions for me before we go to the next thing we need to talk about?" They always wanted to make sure I understood everything before the next item we needed to talk about. These guys really are good and want to please the client anyway they can I thought; when I first started talking to them. I give them above and beyond a 5-Star rating if there was such a thing. I Highly Recommend The Zinda Law Group to Anyone who needs them. This is what I give them if I could!!💯💯💯💯💯 and👍👍👍👍👍 and⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❗❗❗THANK YOU TO NEIL, SHIVANGI, MARA AND TO EVERYONE AT THE ZINDA LAW GROUP WHO WORKED ON MY CASE!! I APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
I would like to recognize a fantastic attorney named Joe Caputo from Zinda Law Group. I was involved in an auto accident that had many complicated moving parts that were hard to navigate and understand as a victim. Joe was so gracious and spent quality time explaining what courses of action I needed to take as a victim to protect myself. Joe was also diligent in following up with me regarding my case and provided guides and checklists that were extremely helpful to keep things organized and moving. Joe was always readily available for my questions and responded promptly. Joe Caputo's excellent counsel ensured I protected myself when dealing with the opposing insurance company and ensured the best possible outcome for my case. Joe's expertise in personal injury lawsuits helped alleviate the stress and anxiety that follows the aftermath of an auto accident. Thanks again Joe! You are truly an amazing, kind person and attorney!
Zinda Law was incredibly amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Michael and his incredibly hard working team after my wreck in November. They went above and beyond keeping up with my health, bills, insurance companies, all that fun stuff I had no time for. After what felt like such a short amount of time, they were able to win every last penny from the "bad guys" insurance (loved that term). I couldn't happier, and even though I went through something traumatic, it was still the best experience I could have ever asked for. Thank you Michael and everyone that helped with my case, yall are the best!!
My attorney was Christina , she and her team gave me the best outcome for my case .I am giving an honesty review at first I was very upset because I kept getting moved around and I never knew who I was talking to because they switch attorneys and kept changing my paralegals.. I was going to go with another law firm but Christina helped me with my case from then on out and she worked around my schedule to talk to me which I appreciate. Also my last law firm took 30 percent, and this one took 33 percent which I wasn’t to happy so just a heads up. Overall I rate this 4 stars cause I’m just happy the case is over with and I get to go back to my life.Update: I just received another call from my attorney and they have worked to negotiate my case with the billing and have put more money in my pocket. All the money that I had spent while working on the case has came back to me. I can fully move on and say that I have gain every penny that was lose during those hard times. I’m so happy and thankful to Zinda law group!!!!!!
Zinda Law Group did an excellent job with my case. The staff was super friendly and super effective as far as communicating with me throughout the entire case. I highly recommend Zinda Law Group for your next case and for any of your future cases. 5 Stars across the board thank you so much for everything!
Joh Harper, Priyonka Bhikha, and the rest of the team gave my case a quick and satisfactory conclusion. The attorney, Mr. Harper did an absolutely amazing job keeping me on the same page as far as the case goes. Honestly, if anybody is hurt in a car wreck or another personal injury case, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEAK TO THEM.
I was in a motor vehicle collision about two years ago. From the minute I picked up the phone to speak with a representative to the case finally settling, it was a great experience. I worked with Burgess Williams and his team (Kathy, Ryan, and Linda) throughout the process. They were all very professional and helpful when I needed them the most.
Great Firm. I was in motorcycle accident- T-boned at a full stop with my daughter riding on back. Zinda's team was instantly responsive. Christina was very compassionate, organized and scheduled time before every legal event to discuss goals and overview. The process was 2 years but during that time the lawyers and staff (John and Shane were also great) were always available and understanding. The team is focused on doing what is right and by the book. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is suffering from a motorcycle accident.
Jason Aldridge and his paralegal Mara did an absolutely amazing job on my case. They were very responsive to all emails, calls and even texts. They treated me with dignity and respect from start to finish. I never once felt like my case was at the back of the list or anything. Not only did they explain and walked me through everything, they got me the help I needed and a final outcome over what I had expected. I would highly recommend this law firm, Jason and Mara to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Highly Recommended-100% Satisfied!.From the initial phone call I felt confident I chose the right firm. They explained the process and I was always in the loop, even when we were at a stand still. Very grateful I was quickly referred to them by a friend who had a similar case. Both of us are happy with the end result. Thank you!
My team of lawyer were very professional and communicated extremely clearly. They kept me updated on their status and did not make me worry at all about my situation. They explained everything to me very well and put things into simple terms for my understanding. I am very satisfied with their performance.
I would recommend them to anyone that's been involved in an accident and feels skeptical in engaging an attorney.When one gets into an accident, you're traumatized, confused, angry and helpless.That was me last year, getting all kinds of advice becomes your next norm, to use or not to use an attorney.I was in so much pain from my injuries but at the same time knew I had to act fast.I called Zinda Law Group for consultation, they took my case seriously and treated me with respect, they were very professional and understanding.Elizabeth, kudos to you, you're true to your word, Integrity should be your last name.Jason Aldridge my attorney went to work immediately, he assured me that all be well and I should concentrate on my healing and he will do the rest. Thank your Sir, You did just that.His team, Mara, Zuleyma and Andrew, they all become my support system, so professional and lots of respect in each and everyphone call or email. Thank you guys.I would recommend anyone to use Zinda Law Group.
I honestly loved not dealing with the hospital bills while I was recuperating. It gave me peace of mind going through this process and Zinda took care of everything. They found awesome health providers for me and haven't had to worry about anything while they've been taking my case. I've been well informed, communicated with, responded to and understood by Zinda. They have been efficient and effective while working on my case and I'm so glad I choose to go with this law firm.
When I was injured in a car accident in March of 2020 the insurance companies were not concerned with my well being. I called Zinda Law group & spoke with Reagan, who went over my concerns & later had Jono contact me. After reviewing my information with Jono my case was immediately put in motion. I worked mainly with Sam Thomas who truly was a blessing to me, he was very supportive & genuinely concerned with my well being, everything wasn't simply about the case it was about me being healed & getting the proper treatment that I needed. Sam was also emotionally supportive when I went through several losses in my family & is a great friend. In all everyone was extremely supportive & all worked for me which was quite a different legal experience for me from Law groups in my past. I was well supported, always informed, treated with respect & made the priority in all decisions. Zinda Law Group made sure I was compensated completely & that I didn't have financial stresses over hospital bills after all was said & done. Sam, Katrina, Mary Catherine, Reagan & Jono I just want to thank you & all of Zinda for the incredible experience & the wonderful caring people that you all are, you are truly Golden in your field.
I am so glad I got in touch with Zinda! My car accident occurred just 4 days prior to moving, during the busiest week of the year at my job, and just a week before the quarantine was declared a new reality for all of us. Everyone at Zinda remained persistent, supportive, and most of all advocated for me throughout such a chaotic time. I’ll always be grateful for the care they took to make sure my health and well-being were taken care of. So super grateful to know that a split second mistake someone else made doesn’t have to dictate my life. Thanks!
My experience with Zinda Law Group was better than expected. After an accident that totalled my car, I reached out and was paired with a wonderful attorney. She communicated frequently and responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. I was kept in the loop during every step of the process. I would call Zinda Law if I ever need this type of support again.
I had an excellent experience working with the attorneys at Zinda Law Group! They were knowledgeable, professional and patient. They walked me through every step of the long process of getting treatment after my car wreck and kept me updated with timeframes and next steps. I would absolutely recommend anyone working with them!
They helped me with so much! I had a dog bite happen 2019 and it was very heart breaking! This law group made everything so easy to help me through a rough time! John Rogers and Shane Eckert were very easy to talk to and open about if I needed to talk about frustrations I had with bills. Everything got closed before Christmas and I was so blessed! I highly recommend them no matter what! Thank you guys so much!
Zinda Law Group helped me with my personal injury case after an auto accident. I was hurt pretty badly and I wasn't sure which attorney to call, I looked at reviews for Zinda Law and called right away.Kaitlin Nares and her team were so responsive and helpful. Kaitlin called me right away and helped me navigate through a very difficult process and time in my life. Being hurt in a car accident changes you!!! My case settled for more than I thought it would, and a lot quicker. I know sometimes things are more complicated, but my case was settled in only 3 months after my accident. Mary-Catherine was also so helpful in making sure everything was finalized! I have referred two people who have recently been in auto accident because it's not IF, its WHEN these days... I usually don't write reviews unless I feel strongly about sharing my experience to help others! Thank you!!!
I was referred here by a family member. Our lawyer jason and his team did and amazing job. They kept me updated in everything made sure I understood what was going on. My son was hit by a van in the hospital jason came right over. He's awesome so much down to earth straight forward. I would recommend him and his firm to everyone and I have thank you zinda but most of all thank you Jason for being there for us for being a friend
Zinda Law Group was recommended to me from another satisfied client and I certainly received excellent service. The attorneys and staff are very proactive with communication and I knew every step of the way what was happening on my case. I never felt pressured with decision making and they went above & beyond to answer questions with satifactory explanations. This is a very professional group of attorneys & support staff. In addition, they were willing to meet me at a location more convenient for me. I appreciated their concern for my time.
Could not speak highly enough of the firm. I was involved in my first accident and thankfully had Zinda Law Group supporting me through the scary time. Jono took care of me every step of the way. He made me feel like I was a priority through the entire process. A big thank you to Jono and the rest of the Zinda crew!

Preventing dog bites in the future

You may want to be prepared for a dog bite in the future, even if you do not anticipate encountering the dog that bit you again. There are a number of ways to avoid being bitten by a dog:

  • Do not panic.
  • Do not run from an unfamiliar dog.
  • Do not make loud noises at a dog.
  • Do not approach an unfamiliar dog.
  • If an unfamiliar dog approaches you, do not move, scream, or make direct eye contact.
  • Let a dog smell you before you try to pet it; if you do pet it, scratch it under the chin instead of on top of its head.
  • If you are knocked over by a dog, roll into a ball and cover your ears and neck.
  • Do not disturb an eating dog.
  • Do not disturb a sleeping dog.
  • Do not disturb a dog while it is tending to its puppies.
  • Try not to play aggressively with your dog.
  • Report any strays or dogs that display strange behavior to the local animal control.

If I sue, will the dog owner put the dog down?

Section 77-1-9 of New Mexico’s code provides that a peace officer may kill a dog that is in the act of attacking a human or is in the act of pursuing or wounding livestock or poultry.

You may have conflicting feelings about what happens to the dog that attacks you; perhaps you do not want to face having to be around the dog in the future if the dog belongs to a neighbor or family member. Perhaps you are instead worried that the dog owner will feel compelled to put the dog down when that is not what you want. Speak with your attorney about your wishes regarding this issue.
