Fredericton Dog Bite Lawyer

Even the most well-behaved, mild-mannered dog has the potential to seriously injure an unsuspecting visitor, neighbour, child, delivery agent, or other member of the local community. If another person’s dog bites, mauls, or otherwise attacks another person, lifelong injuries can be sustained, both physically and psychologically.

If you were injured by another person’s dog, you may be able to file a civil claim for damages you incurred or will incur in the future as a result of your attack. To discuss your case with our dog bite lawyers serving Fredericton, schedule a free initial consultation with Preszler Injury Lawyers today.

Victims of dog attacks often develop infections, sustain disfigurement, and develop other serious medical conditions. In Fredericton, common physical injuries resulting from dog attacks include:

  • Scarring
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Muscular damage
  • Rabies
  • Tetanus
  • Sepsis
  • Endocarditis
  • Meningitis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • And more

In truly tragic cases, dog attacks can be deadly. Small children and toddlers are particularly vulnerable to severe, life-threatening injuries as the result of dog bites. While certain breeds are perceived to be more outwardly aggressive towards children, even dogs with no history of violent behaviour could cause a child’s wrongful death if its owners do not take adequate measures to keep children safe from their pet.

Oftentimes, in addition to the physical injuries that could be sustained when dogs bite, survivors of dog attacks in Fredericton often develop debilitating psychological injuries, including:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD)
  • Permanent phobias
  • Sleep disorders
  • Panic attacks
  • And possibly more

Dog bite victims coping with the psychological trauma resulting from their attack may require counselling, therapy, and/or medication in order to regain a sense of normalcy. The cost of physical and psychological treatment victims may require in the aftermath of a dog attack can be enormous, often putting dog bite survivors in precarious financial circumstances. If the injuries sustained in a dog attack make it impossible for survivors to return to their workplaces, they may be unable to continue earning a regular salary, all because a dog’s owner failed to take the safety of other people into consideration.

Determining liability in dog bite claims can be difficult. That is because, in this province, each regional municipality has its own bylaws governing dog attacks. Depending on where the attack took place, dog bite victims pursuing civil claims for damages may have limited options for financial recovery.

Our dog bite lawyers serving Fredericton may be able to prove that the injuries you sustained in a dog attack were the results of its owners negligence. If the owner failed to take reasonable actions to ensure others would not be injured by their dog– even if it has never previously displayed aggressive behaviour– the dog owner may be considered negligent. If so, they may be liable for damages resulting from their dog’s violent attack.
