Not all dogs attack. But when they do, attacks can result in significant injuries including scarring, nerve injuries, puncture wounds, infection, fear, anxiety and emotional distress. In Connecticut, the owner or keeper of a dog generally is responsible for all injuries his dog causes another person. Additionally, there are various laws that regulate ownership, including local leash laws.
The legal process can be very complicated and difficult to navigate for those who are not experienced in it. A dog bite victim may not know how to handle their own case or through lack of knowledge of what their case is worth, may settle for less than what their case is worth.
