Dog bite injuries

Some pet owners in Connecticut might not be cognizant of the fact that, each year, some 4.5 million people suffer dog-bite injuries, with approximately 885,000 of them requiring medical care. Moreover, some owners might not be aware that if a person is injured by a dog bite, the animal's owner may be held liable for the incident.

Typically, after a dog has seriously bitten a person and police respond to the scene, the animal is quarantined for a period of time. Authorities may then investigate other possible attacks and decide the fate of the dog. The owner of the animal could also be charged with a violation.

People who own, study and care for dogs will tell you that how a dog is raised is the primary factor in whether or not the animal will viciously attack someone. In some instances, a dog bite might happen after a person's unexpected move triggers a reaction in the dog. Still, dog owners are ultimately responsible for their pets' behavior, and in some cases, people who have been injured by a serious dog bite may need to seek legal compensation for injuries.
