Dog Bites/Animal Attacks

Dog bites and other animal attacks are responsible for many injuries every year. Ultimately, pet owners are responsible for the behaviour of their pets and need to be held accountable when dog bites and other attacks lead to injuries and other damage.

At Kronis, Rotsztain, Margles, Cappel LLP, we understand how difficult it can to face the possibility of pursuing a lawsuit against a neighbour, friend or family member after a dog bite. We understand the complexities of these cases and have a proven track record in personal injury and insurance litigation.

Strict Liability for Dog Bites

In dog bite cases, it is not required to prove negligence on the part of the dog owner. Compensation in these cases is obtained either through the homeowner insurance policy of the dog owner or, if there is no homeowner insurance, through the dog owner personally.

We seek full compensation in these cases for dog bite injuries, which can include physical scarring and psychological trauma. Our lawyers represent people from all walks of life, including adults, children, mail carriers and others who have been attacked by dogs.
