CT Dog Attack: Is the Dog Owner Always Responsible for Dog Bite Injuries?

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Oct 29, 2012 | 0 Comments

When it comes to a CT dog attack, Connecticut law explicitly states that dog owners are responsible for any damage to another person's body or property.

If you or a family member was injured in a CT dog attack, the Connecticut dog bite attorneys at Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP are here to help you pursue the financial compensation you need and peace of mind you deserve. Dog bites can result in severe injuries that are accompanied by significant medical and rehabilitation expenses, as well as cause lingering psychological trauma.  If you were hurt in a CT dog attack, please contact Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP for your free case consultation. Our dog attack attorneys welcome clients from the Ridgefield, Danbury, New Haven and Stamford, Connecticut, areas.

There are some exceptions to liability in dog bite cases. If the injured person was bitten by the dog in question while trespassing, or if the injured party was hurt while abusing or tormenting the dog, he or she may not necessarily be responsible for the resulting damages.

After a dog bite, seeking immediate medical attention is the most important step. Also critical is contacting the experienced CT dog attack attorneys at Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP.
