While a dog bite is often considered preventable, the reality is that thousands of people are bitten by dogs each year. Unless someone provokes a dog, Connecticut has a strict liability statute that will hold a dog owner or keeper liable when his or her dog bites someone. Furthermore, the dog does not need a history of attacks before the law applies. Even a dog’s first incident is subject to full liability.

Dog bites can range in severity. While bites by pit bulls can result in broken bones, lacerations, head trauma, and other serious injuries, even small bites have serious consequences such as rabies. Like many premises liability cases, those involving dog bites are fact-driven matters. We help clients determine who is at fault and help them recover all necessary compensation for expenses, including:
Our experienced Stamford Dog Bite Injury Lawyers understand that while the physical damage will be addressed, the emotional trauma must also be considered, especially when children are the victims of a dog bite. Dog bite victims can experience post-traumatic stress disorder, and we will help ensure compensation also covers psychiatric therapy clients may need in order to heal the emotional scars of an animal attack.
We know the personal injury law and how it applies in cases involving dog bites, premises liability and other injury accident matters. Our goal is to quickly and effectively negotiate just compensation for your injury claims rather than go to court. However, if a trial is your only option we will aggressively protect your rights and best interests.
