Injured by a Dog? Call (203) 663-3695

Dogs are common household pets and are dearly loved by many, but we should never lose sight of the fact that they can attack. When they do, there are many consequences that can ensue. Dog bites can range from a small nip to a fatal attack—and can cause physical harm, emotional damage, and monetary loss.

In the state of Connecticut, a dog owner is strictly responsible for his or her dog attacking someone. This does not include attacks caused by any teasing or tormenting of the attacking dog. If a dog bite occurs, you should first seek medical care. Once the wound has been treated properly, a report should be filed. If the bite occurred at no fault of your own, you may choose to file a dog bite report. The protocol for filing a dog bite report in Connecticut varies from county to county. Reports may be filed with both the county animal control officer or the police depending on your county’s regulations. By filing a dog bite report you are creating the helpful documentation your attorneys may use to fight for compensation. Let a New Britain or Waterbury personal injury attorney review your case to gather evidence and build a strong claim for compensation on your behalf.

Children and Dog Bites

Children rarely understand the signs of a dog they should stay away from. Most dog bites occur in the face or neck, making the injury much more severe. Children tend to not only experience serious trauma, they can also experience permanent scarring and disfigurement. The dog bite can lead to an unhealthy fear of dogs, and if the child has visible scarring, he or she may develop major self-esteem problems and emotional health issues.

If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, you have the right to seek compensation for:

  • Medical fees
  • Plastic surgery
  • Counseling
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Income losses
  • Damaged personal property
  • Attorney fees
  • And much more
