Dog Bite Injuries in Connecticut

By McCoy & McCoy   Nov. 21, 2010 2:10p

In Connecticut there is a "strict liability statute" that declares the liability involving dog bites, attacks and their aggression. This statute declares that no matter if a dog has never previously displayed aggressive behavior, attacked or bitten a person before, the owner of the dog is legally responsible for the dogs actions so long as the dog is not provoked in any manner including teasing, tormenting or abuse. If a person is trespassing with the intent to commit any crime, the owner will also receive an exception, which will not leave them liable for the actions of the dog. If you or a loved one has been injured in a dog bite attack it is highly recommended that you contact a Hartford dog bite injury lawyer as soon as possible to learn what your rights are.

Many dogs are extremely friendly and gentle creatures. Any dog however, if it is afraid or aggressive because it believes it is being attacked or it's territory or food is under threat may immediately become aggressive and therefore dangerous. With a predatory jaw as powerful as a canine's the damage caused in a dog bite attack can be disastrous. Often, children are the victims of dog bite attacks and must undergo expensive and painful reconstructive surgery on destroyed facial or bodily tissue.
