In the province of Ontario, dog owners are liable for any injuries caused by the actions of their animal, as governed by the Dog Owner’s Liability Act. If you have been bitten or attacked by a dog, your first step should be to seek immediate medical attention. Be sure to take photos of the injury (both initially and as it develops) and document all available information.
If you have been injured as a result of a dog bite or attack, you may be entitled to compensation to make up for pain and suffering and medical and rehabilitation expenses. Compensation will also account for future loss of income and other damages related to the attack.
