Dog Bite Personal Injury Lawyers – Windsor
Properly trained dogs are wonderful companions for children and adults alike. However, there are dogs that are poorly trained and abused by their owners causing them to be vicious to humans and other pets.
The law in Canada states that the fault or negligence on the part of the owner is not dependent upon their prior knowledge of the likelihood of the dog attacking. Even if the dog is not usually aggressive, the owner of the dog can still be liable. If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury as a result of a dog attack, you should discuss your rights with a lawyer experienced in dog bite litigation.
Dog Bite Injuries
Dog bites can result in serious physical injuries and scarring, or even permanent disfigurement. Depending on the extent of the injuries, you may require stitches or plastic surgery. You may be left with a noticeable and unsightly scar. Dog attacks can also affect your life in other significant ways; you may have suffered an economic loss (such as losing time from work or out-of-pocket expenses), and it is not uncommon for people to develop a fear of dogs that could require counseling.
Compensation of dog bite claims can include medical expenses, cosmetic treatments, and therapy.

We have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies to obtain favourable settlements.
