Dog attacks can be 

Aggressive: Some dogs are aggressive in nature, making them prone to bite another person in their pre-emptive aggression to protect themselves, their territory or their master.

Non Aggressive: Sometimes a dog may become excited and may jump on or bite a person, although it may not be an act of aggression. Dogs have their bad days.

Both aggressive and non-aggressive dog attacks can cause moderate to serious injuries, and may give rise to damage claims. It is generally acknowledged that owners must bear responsibility for his/her dog's behavior, as suggested by many studies. See this article from Smithsonian. The dog owner is deemed to be at fault for a person's injury by his/her dog. However, there are legal exceptions to such a liability as well as possible defenses to minimize the damage claim.

  • Dog attacks may leave palpable injuries and trauma for a long period of time. Some have permanent injury marks or scars, often in sensitive areas of their bodies; causing trauma and negatively affecting gait, confidence or overall lifestyle.
  • Dog attacks may cause temporary to permanent disability. The victim may not be able to attend school or work for days, months or even years.
  • Mental trauma resulting from dog bite attacks are common, and can be very painful or even crippling.
  • Some dog attack injuries are less serious, but they may still cause significant pain, shock, bruise and psycho-physical trauma necessitating legal help for damages from an expert dog bite lawyer.
  • Children are common dog attack targets, though adults and elderly persons are not spared.
  • One dog can also seriously injure, cripple or kill another dog, and thereby causing you a lot of pain as well as financial costs.

Ideally, a person injured by dog attack should be able to get a just compensation from the dog owner or his/her insurer.  But that hardly ever happens in the real world.  

Liability, and especially the full extent of claimable damages from dog bite injury remains unknown or murky at best unless critically assessed by an experienced dog bite injury lawyer keeping your best interest in mind.

In Ontario, dog attack injury cases are governed by the Dog Owner's Liability Act, and the ever changing volumes of case law. A professional and dedicated dog bite lawyer knows how to navigate this regime.

The other party takes the full advantage of existing uncertainty and complexity. The dog-owner is usually protected by their home insurance company whose trained staffs and lawyers leave no stones unturned to use the law and evidence to deny liability or to minimize damages.

Without a dedicated strong dog bite lawyer beside, you are seriously exposed to flat out low offers, minimization or denial of liability, willful ignoring of the full extent of your physical or mental pain and trauma, destruction or minimization of damage evidences; along with needless run-downs, red-tape barriers, mental stress and wastage of time and peace.

Our experienced Ontario dog bite lawyer based on Toronto-Mississauga can protect your rights in every situation. While you go through the healing process, our Ontario dog bite injury lawyer can pursue and curve out a strong case for you. With strong advocacy in light of law and evidence, we will replace the low-ball offers with an optimum just settlement that is ethical and that caters to your best interest.

And if out-of-court settlement doesn't work, then we sue the responsible parties in the Ontario's legal system.  Sometimes a law suit or court trial may be the last but necessary resort to justice, and you need a dedicated dog bite injury lawyer beside you to succeed in the court.  

While most dog bite injury claims are made against the dog owner, depending on a number of factors, the claim can also go against the premises owner, a 3rd party or even the City, and making claim against various parties may be necessary to ensure you get your rightful damages, especially if the dog owner escapes the injury scene and cannot be identified or if the dog owner is judgment-proof.

=> We have a strong track record of dog bite injury case success. We have recovered thousands for the dog bite injured.

=> Getting a maximum just damage for your dog bite injury hinges upon deep understanding of your unique case, professional strength and rigorous advocacy based on Ontario's dog bite law. With a focused Ontario dog bite law practice, we believe we achieve that.

With our dedicated dog bite injury lawyer on your side, you will always end better-off. 

Children Dog Bite Injury

Children are vulnerable to dog bite injury, which can immensely negatively impact them both physically and emotionally.

Because a child cannot represent himself or herself, a child's de facto spokesperson becomes his/her guardian, and at some point during settlement process, this guardianship needs to be formalized by the Court.  Any settlement of a child's dog bite injury needs to be approved by a judge who ensures that the child's best interest is protected.

For all of these reasons, it is of paramount importance that the guardian of a child, where the child is the dog bite victim, contacts a focused dog bite injury lawyer as soon as possible. We can make the best case for your child by rigorous advocacy, professionalism and attention to details. Our goal is to protect your child's best interest post dog bite injury.
