Who Is Liable for My Dog Bite Injuries?
In Connecticut, a dog owner is held strictly liable for any injuries caused
by the actions of their dog, including bite injuries or even injuries
caused by a pouncing dog.
Under Connecticut's strict liability laws regarding dog bites:
- Dog owners are held strictly responsible for injuries caused by their dog's
actions, even if the dog had no prior history of aggression or attacks
- Plaintiffs only need to prove that the defendants were the owners of the
dog, that the dog caused the injuries, and that the plaintiff was not
trespassing or provoking the dog
If the injured person was trespassing on a property or provoking the dog
(teasing, tormenting, abusing), then the dog owner is typically not liable
for these injuries.
Fighting to Recover Maximum Damages
We work to recover damages for not only your medical expenses and any related
bills, but also for your pain and suffering. We know that dog bite injuries
not only scar a victim physically, but emotionally as well. You may need

your claim accounts for these damages as well.
