Do I Have A Dog Bite Incident Claim?
Did you know that in Ontario, there is a strict liability rule when it comes to dog bite incidents? According to The Dog Owners Liability Act, the owner and/or harbourer of a dog is liable for damages resulting from a bite and/or attack by their dog on another person or domestic animal. Ultimately, a dog owner, or a harbourer, doesn’t need to have been careless or negligent to be deemed liable.
If you’re the victim of a dog bite, or have been attacked or injured by someone’s dog, seek medical attention right away. Animal bites and scratches can be quite infectious. Additionally, you should obtain the dog owner’s contact information, report your injury to the police, and request a copy of the report. If possible, take photographs of the incident location and your physical injuries too. Preserving any clothing damaged by the dog can be beneficial too.

Proving fault, and a dog owners’ negligence, can be tricky. Therefore, it’s recommended that dog bite incident victims seek the guidance of a lawyer to help them claim for their dog bite injuries.
