New Waterford Dog Bite Lawyer

Being attacked by a dog can be a horrifying, traumatic, and injurious experience. If a dog bites, mauls, or otherwise attacks a person, the victim of the attack could sustain physical disfigurement and other severe injuries that are both physical and psychological in nature. Oftentimes, these injuries include:

  • 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

Additionally, when bitten by another person’s dog, injured attack victims could become infected with life-threatening diseases. These serious infections often include:

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

Injured dog attack victims often incur significant financial losses as a result of the injuries they have sustained. Injured survivors of dog attacks may require lengthy periods of hospitalization, reconstructive surgeries, psychological counselling, and other necessary injury-related expenses.

Furthermore, if the injuries they have sustained make it impossible for a victim of a dog attack to return to their workplace, their financial losses arising from their incident could be substantially higher. Attack victims could lose wages and even sustain a reduced future earning capability as the result of being attacked by someone else’s pet.

Even if a dog has never shown warning signs of violent behaviour in the past, its owners may be considered negligent if they failed to prevent an injurious attack. Dog owners who took no preventative measures to protect other people from being attacked by their dog could be liable for damages they have incurred as a result of the injuries they sustained.

According to the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the owners/occupiers of both commercial and residential properties are legally required to fulfill a duty of care to other people visiting their premises. Therefore, they are obligated to take certain actions to ensure their safety on-site. Even the owners of well-behaved dogs who have never bitten humans may be considered negligent if they failed to fulfill their duty of care and neglected to take any preventative actions to reduce the risk of an injurious attack on their premises.

If you were injured in a dog attack on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation. Our  dog bite lawyers serving New Waterford may be able to help you pursue a civil claim against the negligent property owner/occupier whose failure to prevent an attack caused you to sustain compensable injuries. By doing so, our New Waterford dog bite lawyers may be able to help you recover compensation for damages you incurred, or will incur in the future as a result of your injuries.
