Seeking justice for victims

New Haven Dog Bite Lawyers

Connecticut pet owners are held strictly liable for any injuries their animals cause, provided that the animals were not provoked. Dog bites are, by far, the most common type of animal attack 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 ensure that your rights are protected to the fullest extent possible. At the Law Office of Carl A. Secola, Jr., LLC, we 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 their dogs’ violent tendencies as a way to avoid responsibility for their victims’ injuries. We conduct a thorough investigation into these cases, taking pictures of the scenes and learning everything we can about the dogs’ histories.

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. We know the types of injuries that can happen during dog attacks, and we understand the emotional trauma that victims can experience as a result. When you choose us as your attorneys, you can rely on us to do everything in our power to secure the full measure of compensation available for your case.
