Almost everyone loves dogs. They can truly be our best friends, but if you are bitten by a dog, it can be a very frightening and traumatic event. Serious dog bites can result in severe pain, nerve and other tissue damage and permanent scarring or disfigurement. If you have been injured by a dog or other domesticated pet, the animal’s owner may be required to pay compensation. This compensation will include direct costs related to your injury, such as the cost of treatment and medication, as well as compensation for pain and suffering and permanent or long-term physical damage. Dog bite victims can even suffer from prolonged emotional trauma such as posttraumatic stress disorder. Pets and other domesticated animals are not allowed to roam free in Canada, so in cases involving significant injuries you should file a claim for damages.

Most dog owners have home insurance that covers liability related to their pets. House insurance generally provides coverage even if the dog bite occurred away from the owner’s property. Sometimes dog-bite cases can be complicated. The dog bite claim experience of our lawyers can be instrumental when it comes to defending your rights. Call us or use our online form to provide us with information concerning your injuries so that our lawyers can start building your case right away.

At Dietrich Law, we know that time is of the essence in dog bite cases because the evidence diminishes over time and the circumstances surrounding your case become more difficult to ascertain the longer you wait to file suit. A delay in filing your request can also raise doubts about the legitimacy of your injury. Waiting until your injuries have healed is not the best course of action with this type of case. As well, you may require a referral to a plastic surgeon or a psychologist, depending on the severity. If you feel you deserve compensation, we suggest you contact us immediately to help you assess the merits of your case. There is no cost to you for this service.

To get started simply let us know what happened and provide us with the necessary information to assess your injuries. We will then determine specific timelines and highlight the relevant information in order to show and prove your eligibility for a claim. We will make sure that all key facts are brought forth to help ensure that you receive the full compensation you deserve.

Thank you so much for helping me thought my tough times. Great staff, I was pleased with my legal term.

No one ever expects to become injured on the job to the point of having to give up their lifelong, much-loved career. It is a devastating and anxiety-ridden ordeal. Your income suddenly tanks, you’re forced to spend your savings and then even start using credit to survive. But when the private disability insurance you have paid into for the better part of 4 decades suddenly terminates the benefits you desperately need to make ends meet… that’s just downright scary. When within 18 months of receiving partial disability benefit payments, I was informed by the insurance company that, in their opinion, I no longer qualified and that my next monthly benefit payment was to be the last, I had no idea where to turn. How does someone like me even begin to take on a massive, multi billion dollar insurance company? It seemed like a David and Goliath situation.

I asked a few trusted people for recommendations and Dietrich Law was the one name that kept coming up. From the first phone conversation with Lina, I had no doubt I was in good hands. Both she and Kathy Simons who agreed to represent me were kind, knowledgeable, and professional through and through. They kept me informed and updated every step of the way, taking the time to patiently explain “legalese” to me whenever I had questions. I will be forever grateful to Kathy and the Dietrich team for successfully fighting for me and giving me back some hope for the future.

When I had my accident in 2016 I was so upset and overwhelmed and did not know what to do. The Dietrich team basically came in and got everything started for me right away. I did not have to worry about anything because they guided me and explained everything step by step. The process was long but everything worked out well. I highly recommend Dietrich Law to anyone looking for a very experienced personal injury law firm., as they will listen to you, take care of all of the paperwork and legal aspects, and let you focus on your rehabilitation and getting your life back of track. Thank you Dietrich Law!

Respectful, professional and knowledgeable to letter. The outcome has been great. I looked forward to the monthly progress reports and genuine positive telephone manner which means a lot to someone in pain.

Thank you George, Lina and Bozena. You are the best in the business !!
