Antigonish Dog Bite Lawyer

Owning a pet comes with its share of responsibilities. Dog owners are responsible for feeding, walking, and caring for the canine member of their household. But in addition to these normal responsibilities, the owners of dogs may be responsible for the consequences of their pet’s behaviour if they aggressively lash out at other humans.

If a dog bites, mauls, or otherwise attacks someone visiting their owner’s property, the pet owner may be responsible for financially compensating the injured victim of the dog attack. That is because, in this province, property owners/occupiers are required by law to take reasonable precautions to prevent injurious accidents from occurring on their premises. If the owner of a potentially dangerous animal fails to take preventative measures to protect their guests from being bitten or mauled, they may be considered negligent. Therefore, they may be liable for damages incurred by injured attack victims.

This may be the case regardless of whether the owner’s dog has shown signs of violence towards humans or aggressive tendencies in the past. If a dog’s owner does nothing to prevent someone else from being injured by their pet on their premises, they may be responsible for financially compensating their guest for the damages they have incurred as a result of being injured.

People who have been bitten by someone else’s dog could become infected with life-threatening diseases. These serious infections might include:

  • Rabies
  • Tetanus
  • Endocarditis
  • Sepsis
  • Meningitis
  • And possibly more

Additionally, the injured victims of a violent encounter with someone else’s dog could sustain severe physical and psychological injuries, the scars of which may last throughout the rest of their lives. Some physical and psychological injuries commonly sustained by the victims of dog attacks often include:

  • Physical disfigurement
  • Scarring
  • Nerve damage
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Muscular damage
  • Rabies
  • Tetanus
  • Sepsis
  • Endocarditis
  • Meningitis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Permanent phobias
  • Sleep disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • And more
