Dog Bite

Every year, thousands of people are bitten by dogs. If you are bitten by a dog, you have a legal right to recover damages from the responsible party. Depending on the seriousness of the injuries, you may be entitled to recover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering.

In some instances, you may also be entitled to punitive damages, which are awarded to punish someone for their behaviour.  To validate an award of punitive damage, the wrongdoer’s conduct must be reckless or intentional. For example, if a dog owner knew his dog was very dangerous, yet allowed the dog to run free.
