Dog bite cases are usually serious in nature. Victims can suffer serious trauma and serious injuries that can leave victims physically and mentally scarred for life. These cases often have a serious impact on younger children.
Dog owners have a responsibility to keep pets under control and restrained around other people. Dog bite statutes in Connecticut make owners or keepers liable for damage or injury a dog causes to a person or property in most situations. The strict liability statute does not require proving the dog owner or keeper knew a dog was otherwise negligent. There are also other circumstances other parties could be held liable. The aftermath of a dog bite injury can lead to some of the following medical treatments.
- Surgical intervention
