Will my dog go to quarantine if it bites someone?

If your dog bites someone in Connecticut, it is a scary situation for everyone. You hold the liability for the accident. According to the Connecticut General Assembly, the victim does not have to prove you were negligent or that your dog had previously aggression issues. While you may face a lawsuit because of what happened, you may also wonder what will happen to your dog.

What should you know about dog bites and children?

Children in Connecticut are naturally curious about animals and may not realize the potential danger that a dog can pose. Knowing the facts about dog bites, how and when they occur, as well as the physical and psychological damage they can cause, can help you to protect your child.

Man and his dog both attacked by off-leash dog

Many people in Connecticut have dogs as pets and understand the strong bond that can exist between a dog and its owner and family members. However, that strong bond does not negate the responsibility of a dog owner to not only care for the dog but also to ensure that their dog does not cause damage or problems to any other persons or property. Unfortunately, there seem to be some people who do not take their responsibilities as pet owners quite as seriously as others.

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.
