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.
George, Cathy and Lena took great care of my wife's MVA and Accident Benefits files. We were happy with the outcome. Lena was on top of everything all of the time and very responsive and helpful. Thanks again!

Following my auto accident the team of Cathy and Josie were so helpful. I would have been lost without them. They are professional and compassionate. I’m so thankful to be their client.
