Port Hawkesbury Dog Bite Lawyer

The effects of dog bites can be both physical and psychological in nature. They can be long-lasting, impactful, and all-encompassing for the injured victims of dog attacks. Depending on the circumstances of the attack, including the breed of biting dog involved in the incident and the victim’s age, the outcome of a dog attack can even be fatal. Toddlers and small children are especially vulnerable to deadly interactions with violent, aggressive pets owned by Port Hawkesbury residents.

When dogs bite humans, they could transmit life-threatening infections, including:

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

Biting dogs could also cause their victims to sustain both physical and psychological injuries as a result of their attack. These injuries frequently include:

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

If you were bitten by a dog and sustained compensable injuries as a result, our dog bite lawyers serving Port Hawkesbury may be able to provide you with crucial legal assistance and support. Depending on the circumstances of the attack including the location of the altercation, the violent dog’s owner may be responsible for providing you with financial compensation for damages you have incurred as a result of being bitten by their pet.

Property owners/occupiers have a legal obligation to take proactive, preventative measures to ensure the safety of people visiting their premises. This includes friends, neighbours, family members, delivery personnel, tradespeople, passersby, and other guests. If the property’s owner/occupier keeps a dog on their premises and takes no actions to prevent it from injuring their guests, they may be liable for damages incurred by injured victims of the dog’s attack.

Even if a dog has never displayed any signs of outward aggression towards humans and is usually well-behaved around people, if its owner failed to take any preventative measures to reduce the risk of their guests sustaining bite-related injuries as the result of an attack, they may be responsible for financially compensating attack victims for their injuries.

Our Port Hawkesbury dog bite lawyers have experience helping injured community members recover the compensation they deserve after being bitten, mauled, or otherwise attacked by a negligent dog owner’s pet. To learn if you might be entitled to pursue a civil claim and recover damages you have incurred as a result of being attacked by someone else’s dog, call Preszler Injury Lawyers today and receive a free initial consultation with our dog bite lawyers serving Port Hawkesbury.
