Liability

If you have been injured due to a dog bite or dog attack, the lawyers at MacIsaac Gow LLP can help you seek compensation for your injuries.

In Ontario, strict laws are put into place to protect people from incidents of this nature. The Dog Owners' Liability Act clearly stipulates that a dog owner is liable for damages caused to another person as a result of a dog bite or attack. This means that even if the owner was acting reasonably at all times, they will always be liable for the actions of their pet.

Contributory Negligence

How much compensation a person can receive in damages due to a dog bite or attack may be reduced if it is found that the injured party was contributorily negligent. In simple terms, if the injured provoked the dog or behaved in a violent way, they be found partially responsible for the injury. Whether an injured party is found to be contributorily negligent is fact specific and dependent on the particular case.

What to do if you were injured from a dog bite:

  • Ensure you receive the dog owner's name and address. Take a photo of their driver's licence.
  • Get the proper medical care you need
  • Report the incident to the police or animal control
  • Take photos of the injuries for proof of injury
  • Contact MacIsaac Gow LLP!
