Bathurst Dog Bite Lawyer


In millions of households across the country, at least one dog is thought of as a beloved member of the family. Providing their owners with loyalty, companionship, and unconditional love, in the best of circumstances, family pets are truly “man’s best friend.”

However, in the worst of circumstances, dogs can be aggressive, violent, and harmful to humans. Even the most mild-mannered dog has the potential to unexpectedly attack friends, neighbours, visitors, passersby, and delivery personnel. In fact, hundreds of Canada Post employees each year are severely injured by other people’s dogs, and incur substantial financial losses as a result of being attacked.

Dog owners have a responsibility to reasonably control their pet’s behaviour. As such, they should take proper preventative measures to ensure they do not cause harm to other people. When dog owners do not take any actions to keep others safe from their pet’s aggression, victims of dog attacks can sustain physical damage, psychological harm, and financial stress. If a dog owner has failed to eash, muzzle, or crate their dog, or take other reasonable preventative actions to keep others safe from harm, they may be considered negligent. As such, they may be responsible for compensating victims for injuries they sustained as a result of being bitten, mauled, or otherwise attacked. This rule applies even if the dog has displayed no signs of violence in the past and has no history of aggressive behaviour.

The repercussions of a dog attack can be severe, and even fatal. Dog bites can cause a victim to become permanently disfigured. They can also transmit life-threatening infections to the victims of dog attacks, causing them to acquire or develop:

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

In addition, the victims of dog attacks can also acquire a host of physical and psychological injuries. Common examples of injuries sustained by the victims of a biting dog include:

  • Scarring
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Muscular damage
  • Sprains and strains
  • Lifelong phobias
  • Sleep disorders
  • Panic attacks
  • Post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD)
  • Low self-image resulting from physical disfigurement
  • And more

As a result of the injuries they have sustained, the survivors of dog attacks may be required to pay exorbitant out-of-pocket costs. The financial losses they acquire could be related to a number of long-lasting consequences of their attack, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Psychological counselling
  • Psychiatric treatment
  • Prescriptions
  • Reconstructive surgeries
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced future earning capacities
  • And more
