CT Dog Bite Injury Lawyer Provide FREE Downloadable Books

Bridgeport, Norwalk, Danbury, Ridgefield, Stamford, Connecticut

Connecticut dog attacks and dog bite injuries occur far too frequently. This is due in large part due to the number of people that have dogs as pets and how frequently each of us interact with dogs in our daily lives. Dog bite injuries can range from very minor, which might involve a scratch to significant which could involve the loss of a limb or finger or could result in a permanent ugly and disfiguring scar to a fatal attack. It has been estimated that over 50% of all homeowners insurance payouts are due to dog
attacks. If you have suffered some type of dog bite injury, it is very important that you seek the advice of an experienced Connecticut dog bite injury attorney at the earliest possible moment.

There has been much debate on whether or not certain breeds of dogs bite more frequently or are inherently dangerous and are more prone to commit attacks which can cause serious physical injuries. In a normal household situation, dogs are tranquil and their normal aggression is suppressed. Dog attacks frequently occur if the animal feels threatened or is provoked. Dogs are instinctively predatory by nature so it is important to remember that any dog has the ability to attack a human. Unfortunately, small children, because of their innocent nature and lack of interaction with dogs, can be misunderstood by some dogs because of their frequent movements and smaller size and could cause aggressive tendencies with dogs that could result in a dog bite attack.

Dog attacks on children frequently occur when the child is unsupervised and left alone with a dog. A child, due to their lack of experience with dogs, might approach a dog that is chained or restrained in an attempt to try to pet the animal which could trigger the dogs aggressive tendencies. An attack by a dog on a young child, or an elderly person, often times result in significant physical injuries due to their inability to be able to fight off the attacking dog due to their vulnerability and or weakness. If a CT dog bite results in an injury whereby the skin is pierced by the dogs tooth or nails, then immediate medical attention should be sought because serious bacterial infections could result which might have far-reaching life threatening ramifications.

Connecticut Wrongful Death Cases: Who Can Sue And For What

Bridgeport, Norwalk, Danbury, Ridgefield, Stamford, Connecticut

What is a Connecticut wrongful death case and who can sue? Our Connecticut wrongful death lawyers have been representing the families of individuals who have been killed through the fault of another in wrongful death claims. A wrongful death action is unique in that it originally it did not exist under the common law that formed the basis of our legal system. Originally, it was held that a claim involving the death of a person “died” with the victim because there was no way to compensate that individual for the damages that they sustained. Originally, the surviving family members were precluded from claiming damages from the other party that caused their loved one’s death.

Over the years, states began enacting “wrongful death” statutes or laws that provide for a method of obtaining compensation for the estates of decedents, or people who were killed, so their family members who have been damaged could collect compensation. Although wrongful death statutes vary from state to state, generally these statutes consist of four elements: the death of the victim which was caused in whole or in part by another party; that the at fault party either intentionally caused, was negligent, or is strictly liable for the death of the victim; there is a surviving spouse, children, dependents or beneficiaries of the deceased individual; and damages or injuries have resulted from the death of the victim.

The estates of the deceased victim could be entitled to some or all of the following types of damages: expenses associated or related to the victim’s death which could include the ambulance bill, hospital bills, doctor and surgical bills, medical and rehabilitative care bills and funeral and burial expenses; loss of the victims future earnings, pain, suffering and mental anguish which was experienced by the victim prior to their death, the pain and suffering and mental anguish experienced by the survivors, loss of consortium on the part of the surviving spouse, and the injuries suffered by the children of the deceased individual for loss of care, companionship, and associated losses.

Generally speaking, in order to commence an action to recover damages in a wrongful death case a personal representative of the deceased person’s estate will have to be appointed. This person is either the executor named in the decedent’s will or if the victim died without a will, the person appointed the administrator of the decedent’s estate who in most cases will be the surviving spouse or other person appointed by the probate court. It is very important that you get the advice of an experienced Connecticut wrongful death attorney immediately so that you can properly protect your rights and start the investigation and development of this important case right away.

Our Connecticut accident and injury lawyers have written the book which we provide to the families of wrongful death victims and accident and injury claimants for free.
