Personal Injury: Dog Attacks

Dog Attack Lawyer

If you are a victim of a dog bite, contact an experienced dog attack lawyer to help weigh all your options.

In Ontario, the Dog Owner's Liability Act was introduced in 1990 to protect victims from dog attacks by holding the dog owner accountable for the damages and liabilities if their dog attacks another person or domestic animal. The damage the Dog Owner's Liability Act holds dog owners liable for includes sustained injuries, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and medical complications related to the dog attack such as sepsis, tetanus, rabies and capnocytophaga infections.

Victims of assault are entitled to compensation for their injuries. Under Ontario's laws, an assault victim can seek punitive and aggravated damages in addition to regular compensation for pain and suffering, loss of income, attendant care and other special damages.

Although dog bites and other animal attacks are preventable, they are still common incidents in personal injury law. Victims of dog attacks often suffer severe injuries such as temporary or permanent disabilities, scarring, the need for surgery from severed arteries, broken bones or tissue and organ damage, and emotional trauma. The most common dog attack injuries are from bites to the head, neck, hands, arms, legs and feet. If you are injured or attacked by an animal belonging to someone else, there is no need to suffer in silence. Legal resources are always available to you in your fight for Justice and financial compensation.

The dog attack lawyers at Leone Murray LLP have significant knowledge and experience with Ontario's laws concerning dog attacks. If you, or a family member, were injured by an animal, we can help you obtain the appropriate compensation.
