If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog attack, you should consult a lawyer with experience in dog bite cases to ensure your claim is properly handled. Under the law, you must commence a legal action against those responsible for the attack within a certain period of time.  You should not delay consulting a lawyer with experience in these matters.

Pursuant to the laws in Ontario, an individual who is attacked by a dog may bring a legal action against the dog owner for damages. Proving liability in dog bite cases does not depend upon knowledge of the propensity of the dog to attack or bite, or fault or negligence on the part of the owner.

In the event that you have suffered injuries from a dog attack, the Toronto personal injury lawyers at Goodman Halioua LLP can assist you in recovering maximum financial compensation for your pain and suffering, loss of income, housekeeping assistance and health care expenses.
