New Glasgow Dog Bite Lawyer


When dogs bite humans, the consequences can be long-lasting, physically painful, emotionally damaging, and expensive. Dog bites can leave physical and psychological scars that may never fully heal, even after costly medical treatment and counselling.

Each year, hundreds of Canada Post employees sustain compensable injuries as the result of being attacked by other people’s dogs. While delivery agents may be among the most regular victims of dog bites, other people’s pets can attack visiting family members or friends, neighbours, passersby, and other people’s children. When small children and toddlers are bitten by dogs, depending on the breed and the severity of the attack, they could sustain fatal injuries.

Survivors of violent dog attacks often sustain a combination of physical and psychological injuries. Frequently, these injuries include:

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

In addition to sustaining physical and psychological injuries as the result of a dog attack, people bitten by other people’s pets may become infected with life-threatening diseases including:

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

How can the victims of injury-causing dog attacks find accountability and compensation for the damages they have incurred? Who is responsible for injuries caused by an animal?

In accordance with the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the people who own and/or occupy both commercial and residential properties owe a duty of care to people visiting their premises. As such, they must take certain preventative measures to reduce the risk of accidental injuries on their properties. If property owners/occupiers keep a dog on their premises, they are responsible for taking measures to ensure it does not cause physical harm to other people. These measures may include keeping the dog separated from visitors, restraining it on a leash, muzzling their pet, or other preventative actions.

A pet owner’s failure to protect other people from being bitten, mauled, or otherwise attacked by their dog could be considered negligence. Even if their dog has a generally non-confrontational demeanour and has shown no warning signs of aggressive behaviour in the past, dog owners who have failed to adequately prevent another person from being harmed by their pet could be liable for damages sustained by injured attack victims.

If you were the victim of a dog attack and sustained compensable injuries as a result, our dog bite lawyers serving New Glasgow may be able to help you in your pursuit of accountability. By filing a civil claim against the negligent pet owners, our New Glasgow dog bite lawyers may be able to help you recover financial compensation for damages you incurred.
