If you or a loved one has been bitten by an animal, you may be eligible for compensation. In some cases, a person may be able to sue for damages for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, as well as any other economic losses associated with the incident. At MacIsaac Gow LLP, we understand that the legal process can be daunting after a dog bite. Therefore, it’s important to contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights and get the compensation you deserve.
A lawyer will work to identify whether or not the owner of the dog had a duty of care to prevent the dog from attacking you or if they failed to exercise reasonable care in controlling the animal. For instance, if the animal was not appropriately secured or was known to be aggressive, the owner may be held liable for any damages caused by the dog.
It’s essential to gather evidence of the attack, such as photos or witness statements. This will help build a strong case for compensation. An experienced lawyer will also investigate all possible parties involved, including the dog’s owner and landlord (if applicable). The lawyer will also work to ensure that you get the maximum compensation you are entitled to under the law.
At MacIsaac Gow LLP, we have experience helping clients recover from dog bites.
