When landlords fail to address dangerous animals

Every year, dogs and other animals cause injuries to unsuspecting victims, which may permanently change their lives for the worse. Since these attacks can make life so challenging, it is crucial for people to do what they can to prevent animal bites in New London, Connecticut, and all over the country. In some cases, landlords may be held responsible if an animal bite took place after they failed to take action.

When it comes to vicious animal attacks, all of the cases are different. Even though people may think the owner of a dog is entirely responsible, an attack may be considered the landlord's fault in certain scenarios. For example, if a landlord failed to fix a gate that was broken after promising their tenants that the gate would be repaired, they may face consequences if a dog escaped through the broken gate and attacked someone.

If you are a dog bite victim or a landlord who is worried about a potentially violent dog on property you are renting, it is essential to take action at once. If your life has been thrown upside down because of an animal bite that has caused costly medical bills, unbearable pain and left you unable to work, you should not be afraid to stand up for your legal rights. On the other hand, if you are renting property to dog owners, you should do everything in your ability to prevent an attack.
