Is a CT Dog's Owner always Responsible for CT Dog Bites?

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Aug 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

Each state has its own laws regarding the responsibility of CT dog owners in the event of a CT dog bite attack. These laws will strongly impact your ability to recover compensation in a dog bite injury case.

In the state of Connecticut, the laws protect the rights of dog bite victims and tend to hold dog owners responsible for damages caused when their pet attacks another person. Connecticut has a "strict liability" law regarding dog bite attacks. This means that you do not need to prove the dog's owner was negligent in order to recover compensation for your damages. You simply have to prove that the dog's owner or keeper was responsible for the dog at the time of the attack. Please contact Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP today to schedule your free dog bite injury consultation.
