Dog Bites in Maryland

In most states, the law that is generally followed in regards to dog bites is the one bite rule. Under this law, most dog owners are not held liable the first time their dog bites another person. However once a dog has bitten someone, then that dog is considered to have shown vicious behavior and from then on, the dog owner be held liable for future injuries caused by that dog.

About seven years ago, I was injured at work and was referred to Lee Tuchman. He became more than a lawyer to me, he became a friend.  He helped me through a process that required long days, a lot of paperwork and phone calls.  Whenever I called his office, he always made time to talk with me. If you are looking for knowledge and perfection, you will find that in Mr. Tuchman. During those 7 years, he told me not to worry and I trusted him enough not too. If you ask my opinion, Lee Tuchman will work hard for you too.
