Whether from a dog bite or other animal attack, injuries caused by animals can be quite severe ranging from lacerations to disfigurement to even greater injuries. Children are especially vulnerable to these kinds of injuries due to their smaller size and decreased ability to react to danger. These incidents are always scary and often serious, potentially leading to injuries requiring long-term care and support.
In most cases, Ontario liability laws place the responsibility on animal owners for injuries caused by their pets, however gaining compensation can be challenging. The owner may not have insurance or might fight the issue. There are also instances where an injury is caused by a wild animal. These complications make it imperative that you seek out the help of a personal injury law firm with a team of legal professionals experienced in obtaining compensation for victims of dog bites and animal attacks and who have the compassion to understand the hardships faced by you and your family.
