Dieppe Dog Bite Lawyer


When dogs attack, both children and adults can be severely injured. Although dogs make beloved family pets and loyal companions, they have the ability to lash out and turn violent, even if unprovoked. Even dogs with no history of aggressive behaviour can, all of a sudden, act in a dangerous manner towards others. For the victims of a canine attack, dog bites can leave long-lasting scars, both physically and psychologically.

Physical injuries sustained in a dog attack can lead to disfigurement, infection, and debilitating medical conditions. Some injuries commonly sustained in dog attacks in Dieppe include:

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

When dogs bite, maul, or otherwise attack unsuspecting Dieppe residents, victims often develop lasting psychological damage, including permanent phobias and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Survivors of dog attacks may require ongoing psychological treatment in order to overcome their traumas.

In truly tragic circumstances, dog attacks in Dieppe can have deadly consequences. Toddlers and small children are especially susceptible to serious, life-threatening injuries as the result of dog bites. Certain breeds of dog may be more inclined to behave violently towards others, including small children, which has prompted calls to ban the breeding of certain dogs within the province.

Determining liability for dog attacks in the province may depend on where the incident occurred. Each municipality in the province has its own dog bylaws. As a result, dog bite victims in Dieppe may be unsure how to pursue accountability and financial compensation for damages they incurred because of the injuries they sustained in a dog attack.

If you have been injured by someone else’s dog in the Dieppe area and are unsure whether you are entitled to financial compensation, our Dieppe dog bite lawyers may be able to offer useful assistance and advice. In many cases, the dog’s owners may be considered negligent for failing to prevent the attack. The dog’s owners, therefore, may be liable for damages incurred by victims who were attacked by their pet. Even if the dog had never exhibited violent or aggressive behaviour in the past, its owners may be required to compensate an injured victim for financial losses they incurred as a result of their injuries.

With the assistance of our dog bite lawyers serving Dieppe, injured victims of dog attacks may be able to pursue a civil claim against the dog’s owners to recover the following damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Psychological treatment
  • Ongoing medical care/in-home care
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more
