Yarmouth Dog Bite Lawyer


After being bitten, mauled, or otherwise attacked by someone else’s dog, it can be difficult to know which steps to take next, and where to turn to find accountability. Dog bites can cause serious compensable injuries, and victims who have been attacked by a violent, aggressive dog often incur substantial financial losses as a result of the physical and psychological injuries they have sustained.

Injured survivors of dog attacks may require lengthy periods of hospitalization, reconstructive surgeries, psychological counselling, and other necessary– and expensive– injury-related costs. Additionally, the injuries sustained in a dog attack may make it impossible for victims to continue performing the duties of their job. In these cases, in addition to the injury-related financial losses they have already incurred, injured attack victims may sustain financial losses related to lost wages and, depending on the circumstances, reduced future earning capacities.

In many cases, dog attacks that cause people to sustain injuries are the result of its owner’s negligence. Even if a dog has never shown warning signs of violent behaviour in the past, its owners may be considered negligent if they failed to prevent an injurious attack. By failing to take appropriate preventative measures to ensure the safety of others, negligent dog owners could be responsible for causing attack victims to sustain a host of physical and psychological injuries. These injuries frequently 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, when bitten by another person’s dog, injured attack victims could become infected with life-threatening diseases. These serious infections often include:

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

In accordance with the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, property owners/occupiers owe a duty of care to the people visiting their premises, and must take reasonable actions to prevent injurious accidents from occuring. As such, dog owners who took no preventative measures to protect other people from being attacked by their dog could be liable for damages they have incurred as a result of the injuries they sustained on their property.
