Sometimes Accidents Just Happen, and Dog Bites Can Be Serious Injuries
Animal attacks are sudden, painful, and traumatic experiences. Our Ottawa personal injury lawyers meet with people left with scars, disabilities, and a profound phobia of animals that stay with them for the rest of their lives as a result of an animal attack.
Dog bites are one of the most common forms of animal attacks, and typically involve children. Our lawyers are experienced in maximum compensation for dog bite injuries. However, attacks from other domesticated pets and wild animals at zoos and parks occur as well.
Have you or a loved one suffered from an animal attack or dog bite ? It’s not your fault
Our Ottawa dog bite lawyers know it’s easy to forget that any animals’ behaviour can sometimes be unpredictable. Our lawyers understand the animal attack wasn’t your fault, and especially in dog bite cases, it’s not uncommon for children who were merely looking to interact with the animal to be attacked.
The Ontario Dog Owner’s Liability Act states dog owners are primarily responsible for ensuring the safety of others and are liable should the dog bite or harm another person regardless of any prior knowledge the owner or victim had of the animal’s aggressive nature.
