Shediac Dog Bite Lawyer


Even dogs who are usually well-behaved and have never showed any signs of outwardly aggressive behaviour could lash out at humans. The temperament of an animal can be unpredictable. Even beloved family pets can turn violent and seriously injure unsuspecting people.

Surviving an aggressive encounter with a violent, biting dog can be extremely traumatic. The victims of dog attacks often develop severe psychological injuries including lifelong phobias, panic attacks, sleep disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Dog bites can be psychologically scarring. However, an encounter with a violent dog can leave long-lasting or permanent physical scars, as well. Victims of dog attacks often sustain gruesome injuries as a result of their attack. These injuries often include:

  • Physical disfigurement
  • Scarring
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Muscular damage
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Sprains and strains
  • And more

In addition to sustaining physical injuries in a violent encounter with someone else’s pet, the victims of dog attacks could also contract physical infections. When dogs bite humans, they could transmit potentially life-threatening diseases, including:

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

Because of the physical and psychological injuries they have sustained in an aggressive encounter with someone else’s violent pet, the victims of dog attacks often incur substantial financial losses. This is especially true for injured attack victims who can no longer return to work as a result of the injuries they sustained by being bitten by someone else’s dog. The financial losses incurred by injured dog bite victims are often related to:

  • Medical expenses
  • Psychological counselling
  • Psychiatric treatment
  • Prescriptions
  • Reconstructive surgeries
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Reduced future earning capacities
  • And more

Pet ownership comes with its share of responsibilities. If someone’s dog bites a visitor to their property, a delivery agent, a neighbour, a passerby, or another guest and the attack victim sustains compensable injuries as a result, the dog’s owner may be considered negligent. Therefore, they may be required to provide the injured party with financial compensation for the damages they incurred as a result of being injured by their dog.

Even if a person’s pet dog had never exhibited aggressive behaviour in the past, they may still be considered negligent for failing to take adequate preventative measures to protect their guests from sustaining injuries in a dog attack.
