Edmundston Dog Bite Lawyer


Millions of households across the country are homes to at least one dog. Many people form deep, affectionate relationships with their pets, and treat them as a valued member of the family. Dogs are colloquially referred to as “man’s best friend,” and indeed, they often provide companionship and comfort to the people responsible for them.

However, pet ownership is a responsibility that extends beyond feeding, cleaning, and walking one’s dog. Pet owners are responsible for the safety of other people who encounter their dogs. If their dog attacks another person, even if the animal never showed any previous signs of aggressive behaviour, the owner who failed to take appropriate precautions to prevent injuries may be considered negligent. If the attack causes another person to sustain compensable injuries, the negligent owner who failed to prevent the attack from happening in the first place may be responsible for financially compensating the injured attack victim.

If a human is bitten, mauled, or otherwise attacked by a dog, they often incur financial losses as a result of the injuries they sustain. Dog bites can leave long-lasting scars, both physically and psychologically, and recovering from them can be extremely costly.

Surviving a violent encounter with a dog can cause injured attack victims to develop severe mental health issues. As a result of a dog owner’s inability to control their pet’s behaviour, attack victims could sustain debilitating psychological issues which may impact their ability to continue working and carrying out the routines of daily life. Some common mental health issues often acquired by the survivors of violent dog attacks include:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Permanent phobias
  • Sleep disorders
  • Panic attacks
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Diminished self-esteem arising from physical disfigurement
  • And more

In order to adequately address these overwhelming mental health issues, attack victims may be required to pay expensive out-of-pocket costs for psychiatric treatment, psychological counselling, prescription medications, and more. Furthermore, injured dog bite victims may incur additional expenses related to their medical treatments, reconstructive surgeries following physical disfigurement, and other injury-related costs.
