Shelburne Dog Bite Lawyer

Just like humans, even the most mild-mannered dog can behave unpredictably. Dog attacks can happen suddenly, without warning or provocation. When dogs lash out against humans visiting their owner’s property, the results can be traumatizing, long-lasting, physically injurious, and expensive. Depending on the circumstances of the attack, including the dog’s breed and the age of the victim, people bitten by violent dogs could lose their lives. Aggressive dogs have been known to severely injure or fatally wound toddlers and small children, and cause other community members to sustain serious physical and psychological injuries. 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

Additionally, when dogs bite humans, they could transmit life-threatening infections. These might include:

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

Recovering from the injuries sustained in a dog attack can be a lengthy and costly process. People who have suffered from physical disfigurement may need complex reconstructive surgeries that require lengthy periods of hospitalization and convalescence. When injured attack victims are unable to perform the duties of their jobs because of the injuries they sustained, they may face even deeper financial uncertainty. Injured attack victims frequently incur a host of financial losses related to medical expenses, psychological counselling, and more.

If you were bitten, mauled, or otherwise attacked by someone else’s dog and sustained compensable injuries as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. Our dog bite lawyers serving Shelburne may be able to help you recover the financial compensation you are rightfully owed.

Property owners/occupiers in this province are required to take appropriate measures and preventative actions to keep the people who visit their premises safe from harm. For those property owners/occupiers whose households include a canine member of the family, that means taking reasonable steps to ensure their pet dog is not able to injure the friends, family members, neighbours, tradespeople, delivery agents, or other people visiting their premises. Failure to take any action at all could create favourable conditions for their dog to injuriously attack an unsuspecting visitor. In these cases, the negligent pet owner could be liable for damages arising from injuries sustained by injured attack victims.

By working with our Shelburne dog bite lawyers, you may be able to pursue legal action against the negligent pet owner whose failure to prevent your attack caused you to sustain compensable injuries.
