Dog Bites and Attacks
Many fellow Ontarians consider their dogs to be an important part of their family. However, even a friendly, well-behaved dog can lash out and attack, causing significant physical and psychological injuries. Children are especially vulnerable to these types of attacks and form a disproportionate number of the victims of dog bite and attack incidents.
Michael Yermus and the team at Yermus & Associates is prepared to help you or a loved one if they are the victim of a dog bite or attack.
The laws in Ontario, under the Dog Owner’s Liability Act, provide for strict liability against dog owners whose dogs bite and attack other people. Furthermore, insurance to address these attacks is covered by the dog owner’s home insurance policy.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog bite or attack, contact Michael Yermus and the team at Yermus & Associates to assist you with your dog bite claim. We offer a free consultation to better understand our rights and will help you obtain the compensation that you deserve.
