If you recently suffered a dog attack, contact a Kitchener dog bite lawyers to learn more about seeking compensation. An experienced injury lawyer can help fight for your right to damages.

Liability Rules

Liability rules for dog bites vary, but in Ontario, the law holds dog owners responsible for certain damages caused by their pet.

The Dog Owners’ Liability Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. D.16, states: “The owner of a dog is liable for damages resulting from a bite or attack by the dog on another person or domestic animal.”

This law means that a dog owner may be held liable for their dog’s aggressive, whether the dog bites another pet or a person.

Dog Bite Lawsuits

Dog bites civil suits can more complicated than they may seem. It can be difficult for someone to correctly identify the dog that bit them, and the dog’s owner, especially given some owners’ tendencies to let their dogs go collarless or wander the neighborhood.

Often, dog bite victims delay seeking medical treatment because they do not think their injuries are serious. However, bites can be more serious than they appear at first glance. Delaying medical treatment is never a good idea, and doing so can lead to further complications in someone’s legal case.

Dog bites can cause severe and sometimes permanent physical and emotional injuries. Lacerations, bruising, nerve damage, emotional distress, and puncture wounds are all common types of bite-related injuries. These injuries can require extensive medical treatment, and may even cause a person to miss work.
