Moncton Dog Bite Lawyer


Even the most mild-mannered, well-behaved family pet can become a danger to the people around it. Dogs have the ability to seriously maim, disfigure, or otherwise injure strangers in violent, unprovoked attacks. In Moncton, toddlers and small children are particularly vulnerable to severe injuries as the result of dog bites. As a matter of fact, when dogs attack children, the consequences can even be fatal.

In this province, it can be difficult to determine liability after an injury-causing dog attack. Each municipality has its own bylaws regarding dog bite rulings. Because of this, people in the province who have been injured by another person’s dog may face different outcomes depending on where their attack took place. As a result, Moncton residents who have sustained injuries in dog attacks often have difficulty determining what steps should be taken next to recover financial compensation.

Oftentimes, when a dog’s owner(s) fail to take necessary measures to prevent other people from being harmed in an attack, they may be considered negligent. If it can be proven that a dog owner’s negligence caused another person to be bitten, mauled, or otherwise attacked by their pet, the owner may be responsible for paying damages incurred by the attack victim as a result of the injuries they sustained. In those cases, even if the dog showed no signs of violent or aggressive behaviours in the past, its owner could still be liable for damages it caused an unsuspecting victim to incur.

If you were the victim of a dog attack and sustained injuries as a result, our Moncton dog bite lawyers may be able to help you recover financial compensation from the negligent dog owner responsible for the 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 physical injuries commonly sustained in dog attacks in Moncton include:

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

In addition to the physical injuries that can be sustained in a dog attack, survivors of these shocking, violent incidents often develop mental, emotional, and psychological trauma. This distress could manifest itself in long-lasting or permanent phobias, as well as severe mental health conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). On top of medical expenses required to address their newly acquired physical injuries, survivors of dog attacks in Moncton may require ongoing psychological treatment to cope with their mental distress.

Recovering from physical and psychological injuries can be a difficult, long-lasting, and expensive process. Bills for necessary medical expenses may begin accumulating quickly. Injured victims of a dog attack who cannot work for an extended period of time because of their newly acquired physical injuries or mental health issues may have difficulty making ends meet after being bitten by another person’s dog.
