DOG BITES

If you are the victim of a dog bite, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. When a dog bites, the owner or owners of a dog are liable for all injuries that result. It does not matter whether the victim is a person, domestic animal, or even another dog.

In Ontario, the law with regards to dog bites is governed by the Dog Owner’s Liability Act (R.S.O. 1990, Chapter D. 16). The Dog Owner’s Liability Act states that it is the owner or owners of the dogs who are responsible for the injuries that you may have suffered. This standard of liability is held to a standard of strict liability.

Under this act, if you are injured by a dog, you need to identify the dog owner, prove that their dog injured you and then, the dog owner is automatically responsible to pay you damages.
