While the thought of a dog bite or animal attack may not immediately arouse thoughts of serious personal injury, these kinds of injuries can produce serious wounds that require intensive medical care and extended rehabilitation.
An estimated 4.7 million people suffer dog bites in the United States annually. While many of these require medical attention, some are actually fatal. It is important to note that Connecticut is a strict liability state in dog bite law. This means that dog owners are generally considered liable for any injuries caused by their dogs, provided that the injured person was not tormenting or teasing the dog and was not trespassing.
Even in a strict liability state, however, there are a number of circumstances when liability can fall to the victim. If you or a loved one has been injured due to an animal attack/knock down, or dog bite, it is important to reach out to a knowledgeable, committed and experienced injury attorney to understand the extent of your injury and to how much you may be compensated under law.
