Sometimes dogs bite causing serious injury to an individual. Every year, countless people are injured as a result of dog bites and attacks. Some are very serious, causing years of fear of animals, physical pain, and in some cases, serious scarring and disfigurement. In Ontario, the Dog Owners Liability Act makes dog owners liable for victim compensation.
Anyone bitten or attacked by a dog should immediately:
- seek medical attention
- ensure the dog has had all the necessary shots by asking the owner and obtaining proof from the veterinarian who administered the vaccines
- obtain the name and address of the owner of the dog
- take photographs of the injured area
- keep all bills, receipts and other evidence of expenses arising from the attack
