New Haven Dog Bite Lawyer
Connecticut pet owners are held strictly liable for any injuries their animals cause, provided that the animal was not provoked. Dog bites are, by far, the most common types of animal attacks in Connecticut. It is the owners’ responsibility to ensure that their dogs are properly restrained so as to ensure the safety of visitors and passers-by.
If you or your child has suffered a serious injury in a dog attack or an attack by any other type of animal, it is important that you have an experienced premises liability lawyer behind you from the start. These cases can be extremely complex, and having the right legal representation can help to ensure that your rights are protected to the fullest possible extent. At the Law Office of Carl A. Secola, Jr., LLC, I represent dog bite victims throughout Connecticut in a wide variety of these complex cases.
Seeking Full And Fair Compensation For Your Injuries
Connecticut does not have a so-called “one-bite rule.” Owners cannot use a lack of knowledge about the dog’s violent tendencies as a way to avoid responsibility for their victims’ injuries. I conduct a thorough investigation into these cases, taking pictures of the scene and learning everything I can about the dog’s history.
It is also important to note that other types of injuries are covered under Connecticut’s dog bite law. A gregarious dog can knock a person down and cause serious head injuries even though it has no intention of causing any harm. I understand the types of injuries that can happen in a dog attack, and I understand the emotional trauma victims can experience as a result. When you choose me as your attorney, you can rely on me to do everything in my power to secure the full measure of compensation available for your case.
