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.

My husband and I were involved in a car accident about two and a half years ago. It was one of the worse days of our lives. If it wasn’t for Dietrich Law, I don’t know what we would of done.

We called them from the hospital the day after the accident and George and Lina actually came to the hospital to talk to us. From there on they took care of everything.

My husband and I didn’t know anything about dealing with the insurance company or how to go about filing our claim. Dietrich Law guided us through every step of the way. Without them we would of been completely lost in this complicated process, especially while dealing with our own recovery as well.

They were there for us every step of the way.

One of the things I appreciated the most is prompt replies buy phone or email from Lina. When one is going through a life changing event, it is so important to know that someone is looking out for you and will answer all your questions. ( even the questions that I asked 5 times but forgot that I did lol)

My husband and I will recommend Dietrich Law to all our friends and family.

Thank you for everything!

Mirjana and Alan
