There is no reason for you not to contact an experienced Connecticut dog bite attorney immediately so that you can have your rights explained to you and understand what you should be doing and what you should not be doing.
Connecticut has a dog bite statute, which holds the dog’s owner or keeper, at the time of the injury, strictly liable for the damages that their biting dog inflicts upon another. There are several exceptions to the dog bite statute which would include whether or not the person was teasing, tormenting or abusing the dog, or committing a trespass or other tort. Under the Connecticut dog bite statute if a child was under seven years of age at the time of the injury, the Connecticut dog bite statute presumes that the child was not committing a trespass or other tort, or teasing, tormenting or abusing the dog. In these cases, the burden of proof is shifted to the owner or keeper of the dog in proving otherwise.
Common injuries that can result from dog attacks could include the following: puncture wounds; tearing wounds; facial injuries; cosmetic injuries; broken bones; infections; rabies; permanent injuries to affected body parts; and other physical injuries. In most cases, the owner or keeper of the dog would provide an attorney’s notice of claim to their homeowner’s insurance company or tenant’s insurance company that would cover the injuries and damages caused by the biting dog.
