Dog Bites & Animal Attacks
Not all encounters with animals are positive. In an instant, an encounter with a dog or other animal can change your life or the life of a loved one. It only takes a moment for a dog or other animal to bite or attack you and the damage can be physically and emotionally long lasting.
Dogs and other animals are all around us: at the neighbours’, around the corner, on the way to school, on your running route, etc. If you have suffered an animal attack, your lifestyle can suddenly change. The emotional distress and anxiety can be permanent, lasting longer than the actual injury. Alternately, the attack can leave you permanently scarred or disfigured.
Under Ontario law, the owner of the animal is liable for the injuries caused by their animal. With the help of our experienced and skilled lawyers, we can assess your claim and inform you of your options for recovery. We will seek to obtain the maximum compensation for your physical injuries and the emotional distress you have suffered.
