Video: About Loughlin FitzGerald, P.C.

Following a serious accident there are many matters that need to be addressed. One of those things could be pursuing a personal injury lawsuit. Since most people in this situation are focused on healing and unaware of what that course of action entails, it can be scary. We understand that and work with our clients to find the best way to resolve their personal injury claims.

Branford woman suffers severe dog bite injuries

Most Connecticut dog owners would never expect their furry friends to attack anyone. Unfortunately, pets are sometimes unpredictable. Even when dogs are kept in their homes, they are prone to escape if the doors are not securely shut or locked.

In New Have, and elsewhere, regardless of the breed of dog a pet owner has, they have a responsibility to ensure that their pet is properly socialized so it will not attack or that it is safely enclosed in their home or yard. If a dog gets out and attacks someone, it can result in serious personal injury, which can have lasting effects. Often, the pain from dog bite injuries is not just physical; victims of animal attacks often have lasting emotional pain as well.

Pet owners have the responsibility to not only just care for their dogs, but also to ensure that they are kept secure in a home or fenced yard. Even dogs whose owners believe they are properly socialized and safe to be around can sometimes snap and attack a person or another animal. For people in New Haven, as well as other localities throughout the U.S., the trauma of a dog attack can be long lasting and can stretch beyond just the serious injury that dog bites can cause.

It is one thing to have a dog act out on its own and bite someone in New Haven, CT, but quite another for the owner to actually order it to attack another person. In these types of instances, it can be argued that the owner is actually using his or her pet as a weapon.
