Dog Bite Injuries in London, Belleville and Fergus Ontario
Unintended and unprovoked dog attacks can not only cause severe and permanent injuries to the victim but also tremendous psychological and emotional trauma. Being attacked by an animal such as a dog can result in lacerations, puncture wounds, extensive scarring, with the most severe cases requiring multiple surgeries to correct the damage done.
Fortunately, the majority of dog owners are responsible individuals that ensure their pets are obedient, properly socialized and friendly. However, it is the minority of dog owners who encourage aggressive behaviour and even purchase certain specific breeds of dogs in order to portray a certain image that are usually responsible for dog attacks.
Ontario has enacted laws that were designed to protect the general public, provide instructions and guidelines for dog owners as well as lay out the legal framework for obtaining compensation in the event of an injury or damage to property. The Dog Owner’s Liability Act states that the dog owner is responsible for any injury or damage to property caused by their dog unless the attack was provoked or the dog was in some way encouraged by the victim. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer will allow victims of unintended dog attacks get the justice they deserve.
