Restigouche County Dog Bite Lawyer

Dogs are commonly referred to as “man’s best friends.” In fact, dogs are valued members of the family in more than 7 million households across the country. Loyal companions and beloved pets, dogs often bring comfort and joy to their owners and neighbours.

However, if dogs bite unsuspecting neighbours, postal workers, delivery agents, children, and others, the repercussions can be severe. In truly horrific circumstances, violent dog attacks can lead to wrongful deaths. If a dog’s owner fails to take measures to ensure the safety of other people, their pet could viciously and senselessly cause family members to lose a loved one. Most often, small children and toddlers are the victims of fatal, preventable dog attacks.

Those who survive a violent dog attack frequently sustain permanent scars, physically and psychologically. Victims who have been attacked by someone else’s dog often develop:

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

The psychological injuries sustained by dog bite victims often affect their overall quality of life. And while the mental and emotional challenges arising from dog bites may impact a victim’s ability to live a normal life, the physical injuries they may sustain as the result of a canine attack can be even more debilitating.

It is not uncommon for the victims of a dog attack to develop serious infections as well as physical disfigurement. Depending on the circumstances of their attack, dog bite victims can sustain serious injuries, including:

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

Dog bites are frequently the result of their owner’s negligence. Even if their pet has never displayed aggressive behaviour in the past, owners have an obligation to take measures to protect other people from injuries caused by their dog. Through a number of wrongful actions or inactions, such as allowing their dog to interact with people without a leash or muzzle, an owner’s negligence could create the circumstances leading to severe injuries. If found negligent, the owner of a biting dog could be responsible for damages arising from its victim’s injuries.

If you were bitten, mauled, or attacked by another person’s dog and sustained injuries as a result, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Injured survivors of dog attacks often incur financial losses as a result of their encounter with another person’s aggressive pet. These damages often include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Psychological treatment
  • Ongoing medical care/in-home care
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more
