While it may not seem like a serious issue, dog bites in the United States annually cause hundreds of thousands of injuries severe enough to require emergency medical attention. Particularly in cases involving larger dog breeds, these injuries can pose serious health issues to the injury victim, potentially even resulting in death. Additionally, such injuries can cause further repercussions, including emotional and financial burdens, that can be extremely debilitating for the victim and their family.
A form of strict liability exists under Connecticut liability law for dog bite injuries, unless the victim of the incident provoked the dog into the attack. As such, at the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we work to support those who have been the victim of an dog attack hold the owner responsible for the dog liable for their role in the attack and pursue the compensation they need after sustaining a dog bite injury.
Dog Bite Injuries
Even a relatively small dog can cause fairly significant injuries if it attacks another person. Thus, whether a large or small dog attacks a person, the victim may sustain severe and devastating injuries, such as:
- Broken bones
- Puncture wounds
- Scarring and disfigurement
In the most severe cases, a victim may sustain life-long disabilities or even lose their life in such an attack.
