Connecticut Dog Bite Laws
Connecticut dog bite laws impose strict liability on dog owners. In other words, dog owners are responsible for injuries their dogs cause to others, whether those injuries were caused by dog bites or other harmful behavior by the dog.
Strict liability does not apply if the victim was trespassing on the dog owner’s property or provoking the dog at the time of the attack. However, a child under the age of seven is not presumed to have trespassed or provoked a dog.
Our personal injury lawyers will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your case to determine how this dog bite injury took place and who is to blame.
