In Ontario, dog owners are responsible for the injuries their dogs cause people or animals through a bite or attack, according to the Dog Owners' Liability Act. This liability is automatic; however, the amount of damages depends on the circumstances of the attack and the severity of the injuries.
At Goldstein DeBiase, our Windsor team represents clients whose dog bites have caused serious injuries. Our lawyers help our clients to receive the financial compensation they require to recover from the physical and emotional trauma of a dangerous dog attack.
Over our years of helping injury victims, we have developed the experience, legal skill and record of success our clients look for in legal representation. As seasoned trial lawyers, we have the knowledge and strength to pursue a dog bite attack case to a successful conclusion.
Severe Effects of a Dog Bite Attack
A dog attack can cause serious injuries that can result in severe scarring, the need for reconstructive surgery and physical rehabilitation. Victims often suffer emotional effects, such as a long-term fear of dogs and other psychological stress disorders. In particular, if the victim is a young child at the time of the incident, the full effects of the bite or attack may not be fully understood for a long period of time, perhaps years.
The financial losses for dog bite victims can be extensive, including lost wages during recovery, rehabilitation costs and medical expenses not covered by OHIP.
