Dog attacks: What everyone should know


Over the past 12 months, pet ownership and adoption has increased substantially. While our furry friends provide love and companionship, sometimes they can get aggressive, leading to bites, attacks and various other injuries. Most dog owners aren’t aware that they can be held liable if their pet chases someone, leading to that person being injured. The injury doesn’t have to be caused by the dog’s teeth. Further, owners can be held liable for psychological trauma caused by their dog’s behaviour.

Bergel Magence Personal Injury Lawyers has been handling dog bite/attack claims for nearly 50 years. Andrew Bergel recently appeared on CTV’s Things to Know TO discussing what to do if you’ve been bitten or attacked by a dog, or if your dog attacks or injures another person.
