The statute of limitations on dog bite claims is three years from the date that the dog bites you. Like any other negligence statutes in Massachusetts, you have three years from the date that that dog bites you or causes you injury to make a claim. As a child, however, you have three years from the date that you turn 18 to make a claim. My name is Robert Mazow. I’m a partner at Mazow McCullough.
