Act quickly, as there are certain deadlines for filing any claim and if a case is filed after a long period of time then it may dismissed by the court.
The owner of the dog can be held liable if they had the knowledge of the dog being aggressive towards humans especially if the dog has bitten someone before. However, this law does not apply if the dog was being aggressive towards an animal or the dog owner could not tell if he would attack a human. The dog bite cases can be also fought on the basis of negligence although the state of New Mexico considers the act of provocation.
