Dog Bite Lawyer Edmonton

Dog bite claims are some of the more common cases we handle at BPCAB Law.  Our experienced personal injury lawyers only represent the victim, not the animal owner.  When dogs bite, their teeth can puncture a person’s skin, pass infections from their saliva, and tear the victim’s ligaments and muscles.  Furthermore, these injuries inflict more than physical harm and can also affect a person’s emotional well-being, especially among younger victims.  Sadly, in many dog bite cases, children are the victims.  According to the Canada Safety Council, nearly half a million Canadians are bitten, 50% to 70% of which are children.  Here are a few other statistics to be aware of:

If you or your child was bitten by a dog, don’t wait to speak with an experienced BPCAB Law personal injury lawyer. We have handled such cases in the past and can help you get justice.

    Accident causes – Why do Dogs Bite?

    Dogs bite for numerous reasons.  So, it’s important for pet owners to understand what causes this.  While some breeds are naturally aggressive, others bite out of confusion, fear, or just because they’re being playful.  However, dogs also bite due to the pain and discomfort of illness.  As a dog owner, it’s also important that you train and socialize your pet to prevent them from biting.  This can help dogs feel more comfortable in unfamiliar surroundings and will reduce their likelihood of biting.

    Most common Dog Bite Injuries

    Dog bite injuries can range from mild or slight to severe and can even be fatal.  These injuries can result in disfigurement and scarring as well as infection and nerve damage.  In some cases, abrasions, broken bones, and severe scratching can result from a dog attack.  Some of the more common dog bite injuries we’ve seen at BPCAB Law in past cases include:

    Every dog bite situation is unique.  In some cases, unleashed dogs can cause harm without biting the victim.  Some victims were injured when fleeing an aggressive dog while others were knocked down by the animal.  In any event, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

    Compensation for Dog Bite Injuries

    Since each dog bite case is unique, the amount of compensation you could be entitled to for your injuries will often vary based on the details of your specific case.  You could be compensated for lost income and your medical expenses as well as your pain and suffering.  The average dog bite case in Canada pays upwards of $30,000.  For a more detailed estimate of the amount of compensation, you may be entitled to, contact a BPCAB Law personal lawyer to assess your case in a FREE consultation.   Fortunately, our personal injury lawyers will not be able to give you an exact amount of compensation for your injuries until we’ve investigated the circumstances surrounding the incident, liability is established, and medical treatment has been administered.  This is because if the insurance company pre-determines the amount of your claim, you won’t have an opportunity to plead your case based on your circumstances.  And that could prove to be disastrous.

    What is my Dog Bite Claim worth?

    Wanting to know what your dog bite claim is worth isn’t unreasonable considering you may be missing work and have medical bills piling up.  It’s also not unreasonable to want some kind of justice for the physical harm that’s been done to you or your child.  With all the pet dogs in Canadian households, it’s no wonder that nearly half a million Canadians are bitten every year.  Depending on the circumstances and all relevant Provincial laws, dog owners will be liable if their pet attacks and injures another person.  This means that the pet owner or their insurance company will have to pay for damages or the victim’s injuries.  Those damages may include but are not limited to:

    In any event, hiring a BPCAB Law personal injury lawyer will help maximize the compensation you could be entitled to.
