Dog Bites & Injuries Archives

How does aggression affect dogs?

Residents in Connecticut may face dog attacks for many different reasons. Even dogs that you are familiar with could attack you seemingly without warning. In fact, a high number of dog attacks actually involve dogs that aren't strangers to the victim, whether that dog belongs to a friend or even family. In some cases, aggression can contribute to the likelihood of these attacks.

Dog breeds: the data and the dangers

Dogs are considered family members in a plethora of Connecticut households. After all, these furry friends can provide strong bonds and even protection. As loving as these creatures may be, it is impossible to predict the actions of a dog. When a person's pet turns on another human or animal, a legal situation could ensue. The following information provides a scope into the most dangerous dog breeds, as well as ways to avoid a potentially dangerous attack. 

What is negligent security?

Premises liability is about more than a slip-and-fall accident in Connecticut. Another side of this liability, known as negligent security, holds owners responsible for injuries sustained on their property due to a lack of security. At Loughlin Fitzgerald, we understand how frightening and traumatic it is to be the victim of assault, robbery or another criminal act. We work with clients in these circumstances to ensure they are fairly compensated for physical and emotional issues arising from the crime.

Why do dogs bite?

You may have the most sweet-tempered dog in Connecticut, but that does not mean your dog will never nip or bite. The same can be said for other dogs you know or run across during your daily walks with your pup. Dogs can be unpredictable, and a dog that is normally very friendly might cause a serious injury.

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.
