Social host liability: learn what to do if a guest is injured at your social eventSeptember 5, 2018
If you or a loved one is ever bitten by a dog, what should you do? What are your legal rights? In this article, Toronto personal injury lawyer Andrew M. Lee discusses personal injury law with respect to Dog Bite Claims and what you should do if you are ever bitten by a dog.
Often, when someone is bitten by a dog, most people will want to seek medical attention to ensure there has been no spread of disease, such as rabies. Medical reports and documentation of injuries can be used for a legal claim, along with photographs and anything else that can be gathered from the scene. It’s important to note that in most cases, the claim will only be successful if the owner is identified. Victims of dog attacks should take steps to preserve the evidence and identify the dog owner if they wish to pursue a claim.
