An investigation must determine if the dog was a known threat to the public, if it bit anyone in the past, or if the dog’s owner was negligent. Even if a dog has not exhibited violent tendencies before, you may still hold the owner of the dog liable.
In Connecticut, a dog’s owner must pay for any damage caused by the dog to a person’s body or property. When a dog attack occurs, you can hold the dog owner accountable.
The long-term injuries that can result from an animal bite might mean ongoing pain and a decrease in the quality of life. A person severely bitten by a dog may require physical therapy to rehabilitate them – not to mention the expenses of this care. Some people may even need counseling due to the trauma of the attack.
As part of our investigation of a dog bite claim, we call upon medical experts to determine the severity of injuries and their impact on a person’s life. Compensation awarded as part of a claim can pay for medical costs for ongoing care.
If you or your child was injured by a bite from a dog or other domestic animal, contact an experienced Connecticut dog bite attorney to fight for your rights. You may recover compensation. A claim does not undo the damage, but a monetary reward can help with your family’s future financial security after suffering such a terrible ordeal.
