As many as half of all children will be bitten by a dog in their lifetime, and these attacks are most often due to poor training or abuse on behalf of the owner. That’s why in Ontario, the owner of a dog is fully responsible for injury caused by dog bites. Not only is the animal a victim of suffering, but now you have to recover from what can, in some cases, be a severe and even permanent injury.
Dog bites can cause long term scarring and, on occasion, complications resulting in death. Treatment can include stitches, medication, and antibiotics. In order to receive your full compensation for your dog related injuries, inquire with one of our lawyers.
