Wolfville Dog Bite Lawyer

Nobody expects to be seriously harmed by someone’s beloved family pet. However, even the most mild-mannered dog with no history of aggressive behaviour towards people can act out of the ordinary. When someone else’s dog bites, mauls, or otherwise attacks a person unexpectedly, unsuspecting attack victims could sustain long-lasting physical and psychological injuries.

Some physical and psychological injuries commonly sustained by the victims of dog attacks often include:

  • Physical disfigurement
  • 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, people who have been bitten by someone else’s dog could become infected with life-threatening diseases. These serious infections might include:

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

Recovering from the injuries sustained in a dog attack can be a long, challenging, and expensive 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 a dog’s owner does nothing to prevent someone else from being injured by their pet on their premises, they may be responsible for financially compensating their guest for the damages they have incurred as a result of being injured. This may be the case regardless of whether the owner’s dog has shown signs of violence towards humans or aggressive tendencies in the past. Since the owners/occupiers of commercial and residential properties in this province are legally obligated to protect the safety of people visiting their premises, they may be considered negligent if their inaction causes someone else to be injured in a dog attack.

That is why, if someone else’s dog bit you and caused you to sustain injuries, you may be eligible to pursue compensation. Our dog bite lawyers serving Wolfville may be able to help you file a civil claim against the negligent dog owner whose failure to uphold the duty of care they owed to their guests caused you to sustain compensable injuries. By doing so, our Wolfville dog bite lawyers may be able to help you recover damages resulting from your injuries.
