Chéticamp Dog Bite Lawyer


Dogs are valued members of millions of households across the country. They provide their owners with boundless positive energy, affection, companionship, and loyalty. However, as well-behaved as dogs may be towards the people they think of as family, they can be aggressive and violent towards others, especially if they perceive them to be a threat.

Each year, hundreds of Canada Post workers are seriously injured because of an aggressive encounter with a territorial dog. Dogs can also attack neighbours, friends, visiting family members, tradespeople, delivery agents, passersby, and other visitors to their owners’ property.

If a dog bites, mauls, or otherwise attacks an unsuspecting human, the outcome can be fatal. This is dependent on the dog’s breed as well as the age and medical condition of the attacked victim. Toddlers and small children are particularly susceptible to fatal injuries as the result of an encounter with a biting dog.

Those who survive violent encounters with other people’s pets often sustain a range of both physical and psychological injuries, some of which may never fully heal. These injuries frequently include:

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

Furthermore, when dogs bite humans, they could transmit life-threatening infections. These might include:

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

In this province, the people who own and/or occupy either commercial or residential properties owe a legally mandated duty of care to the people visiting their premises. They are required by law to take reasonable measures to ensure that guests to their property do not sustain injuries in traumatic accidents. If the property owner/occupier has a dog on-site, it is incumbent upon them to take necessary preventative actions to make sure visitors to their property remain unharmed, even if their dog has never displayed any signs of outwardly aggressive behaviour towards humans. Failure to take these measures could be considered negligence if the dog owner’s inaction leads to an injurious attack against someone visiting their property.

Therefore, if you were injured in a dog attack on someone else’s property, our dog bite lawyers serving Chéticamp may be able to help you recover financial compensation for the injuries you sustained. By working with our Chéticamp dog bite lawyers, you may be able to pursue legal action against the negligent pet owner whose failure to prevent your attack caused you to sustain compensable injuries.
