Dog Bite Lawyer Scarborough

Pet dogs offer their owners unconditional love, companionship, and loyalty. Nearly 60% of Canadian households own at least one domesticated pet, including dogs, and many feel the personal benefits of sharing their home with these canine companions.

It has been scientifically proven that dog owners generally live longer, have reduced levels of stress and anxiety, experience less loneliness, visit the hospital less frequently, have better blood pressure, and better overall physical and psychological health than people with no pets. That said, owning a dog comes with its share of serious responsibilities.

Dog owners are responsible for feeding and walking their dogs regularly, and for providing them with a loving and comfortable home. On top of those basic obligations, though, dog owners are also responsible for their pet’s behaviour towards others.

According to the province’s Dog Owners’ Liability Act, people who own and care for domesticated canines owe a duty of care to other humans. If their pet dog bites, mauls, maims, or otherwise attacks another person, they might be liable for resulting damages. 

That means, even if a dog has never behaved violently or aggressively towards people in the past, its owner is still required to take reasonable precautions to ensure their pet does not cause any harm to other humans. If a dog owner fails to protect a guest, a neighbour, a delivery agent, a mail carrier, or a passerby from being attacked by their pet, they could be responsible for providing them with compensation for injury-related costs they have incurred.

Being bitten by a dog can be a traumatizing experience. Violent, biting dogs can leave deep physical and psychological scars which might never fully heal. 

In addition to sustaining physical injuries, many dog attack victims develop severe mental health issues as a result of their encounter with an aggressive dog. These issues often include:

  • Permanent phobias
  • Depression
  • Sleep disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety
  • Low self-esteem due to physical scarring/disfigurement
  • And more

Recovering from the wounds sustained in a dog attack can be a long, challenging, and expensive process. Many victims incur substantial financial losses after being injured in a dog attack. These losses are often related to:

  • Psychological treatment
  • Prescription medications
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • Housekeeping costs
  • Mileage to and from medical appointments
  • And more
