Dog Bites & Injuries Archives

What will happen to my dog if he bites someone?

If you are a Connecticut dog owner, it would behoove you to make sure that he does not bite someone who is on your premises and that he does not escape from your home or yard and bite someone. If he does, not only are you liable for any personal injuries and/or property damage he causes, but he faces death by shooting, euthanasia, or other means.

Is your landlord responsible for a dog attack?

Connecticut residents like you who live in an apartment or shared housing situation may also have to share your space with dogs. But if those dogs become violent and end up biting you, who is to blame? Is it the other tenant who owns the dog, or is it the landlord who allowed the dog to reside there?

How much will it cost to recover from a dog attack?

Connecticut residents who have been attacked by a dog will soon find out that the expenses of these attacks can be quite high. From medical bills to therapy to extended treatments and more, an attack that lasts just a few seconds can end up leaving you with long-lasting and heavy expenses.

The symptoms of rabies

Animal attacks can happen in any location and at any time, but some may be more dangerous than others. If you have been bitten by a dog or other creature in Connecticut, you may be worried about whether or not you should be concerned about rabies. We at Loughlin Fitzgerald have created a list of the most common symptoms to watch out for if you or someone you know has suffered a dog bite.

Stronger dog ordinances considered in New Haven

In the summer of 2016, a woman was killed after being attacked by two pit bulls in New Haven. This is sadly not the first such incident that Connecticut residents have heard about where a person is seriously injured or killed by a dog. While pets can be a positive part of people's lives, it is also important for them not to be allowed to harm others.
