If a domesticated animal, such as a dog, attacks and injures you, the law holds the owner of the animal responsible for your injury. In most cases, the owner’s homeowner or tenant insurance policy will pay the compensation.
In Ontario, animal attack victims who suffer serious and permanent injuries can recover damages compensating them for all of their losses. Losses may include pain and suffering, past and future lost income, health care and home maintenance costs. However, there are time limits when such claims can be brought forward. Consult a lawyer to properly assess what you are entitled to and to identify those responsible for your injuries.
