Dog Bite

Dog bites can result in permanent scarring and other lifelong injuries.  If you suffered from a dog attack, you may have a claim against the dog owner and the dog’s keeper.  You can claim compensation for your pain and suffering, medical and rehabilitation expenses, and lost income.

Under Ontario’s Dog Owners’ Liability Act, the dog owner will be found responsible for any damage caused by the dog.  However, if you provoked the dog, you may be found partly responsible for your injuries.

Dog bite claims are usually defended through a homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy.  Where such insurance exists, you will not have to worry about trying to enforce a court judgment.

Dog bites can cause physical and emotional suffering.  Don’t be a victim.  By bringing a claim, not only will you secure the compensation you deserve, but you will also protect others from becoming victims.
