Dog Bites: Liability, Consequences and Compensation in Ontario

In Ontario, the Dog Owners’ Liability Act holds dog owners strictly accountable for their pets’ actions. This law dictates that if a dog bites or attacks someone, the owner is liable, irrespective of the dog’s prior behaviour or the owner’s actions.

This degree of responsibility is placed on owners because dog bites cause serious injuries and psychological harm. Some of the damages we see most often in dog bite victims are severe physical scars and long-lasting psychological conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. The resulting financial burden from medical expenses and lost income only adds to the victim’s distress.

At McNally Gervan, we recognize the severity of these incidents. We provide specialized legal assistance to help the victims of dog bites navigate their claims process and secure compensation for their physical and emotional suffering.
