Have you or someone you care about suffered the trauma of an unforeseen and unprovoked attack? Do you freeze the minute you hear a dog leash around you? After being mauled, wounds can be severe and can leave significant scarring. Additionally, the psychological impact and cost implications for scar revision can be tremendous, in particular nightmares and fear of dogs for the remainder of your life can become a problem.
In Ontario, the law is clear: an owner of a dog may be liable for damages resulting from a bite or attack by a dog on another person or domestic animal under the Dog Owners’ Liability Act. There is no negligence that has to be proved. As a victim of a dog bite, you simple need to corroborate that you were bit by the subject dog and prove that the dog is owned by an individual as a dog bite is considered to be a strict liability offence.
To share something personal, the founder of this law firm was bit by a German Shepherd dog at the young age of 13. Until date, he has scars and wounds on his arms and notwithstanding being attacked several years ago, he suffers from occasional nightmares of being bit by the same dog (who died many years ago). Sunish R. Uppal can empathize with your injuries and the emotional trauma you are going through. Given he understands your pain, he can passionately advocate for your injuries and attempt to obtain the best possible settlement for you.
