The state of Connecticut's dog bite statute CGS §22-357 holds dog owners liable for injuries that were caused by their dogs. These liabilities extend to another person's property as well as injuries caused from bites. This statute is a strict liability statute, which means that a victim does not need to prove that the owner was acting in a negligent manner or that there was prior evidence that the dog would act aggressively.
You may be eligible to receive compensation, if a dog bit you and you were not doing the following:
Dog bites can be highly traumatic, and victims can suffer painful and sometimes lifelong injuries. Young children are susceptible to facial injuries from dogs and may develop a permanent fear of the animal after an incident. Adults can also fall victim to vicious dog bites, and sometimes dogs may attack other animals as well.
Oftentimes, injured individuals require immediate medical attention to help them overcome the injuries they sustained. Stitches, staples, and even surgery may be necessary to help victims heal, and these medical expenses can rack up quickly.
