In Connecticut, owners are strictly liable for any damages caused by their animals —in other words, you don't need to prove negligence against the owner. All you need to prove is ownership, the fact that the dog caused an accident or injury to you or your child, and damages. The owner can defend only on the grounds of trespass or provocation.

Animal owners are also responsible for damages suffered in car accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents and other mishaps caused by a dog off the leash, or even a loose farm animal. Our attorneys' experience across the full range of personal injury claims can help you present your strongest case under a homeowner's liability policy or any other source of compensation.

Whether the injuries resulting from your dog bite incident are lacerations consistent with a brief attack or the multiple severe traumas characteristic of a sustained mauling, our law firm can help make sure that you get the medical treatment you need right away while we investigate your case and evaluate your damages.

For people hurt by dogs or other animals while working, we can advise you about your workers' compensation rights, as well as your personal injury claims.
