Many of us are dog owners and dog lovers and it is unimaginable to think that a dog could cause serious and even debilitating injuries to someone. However, the reality is that dog bites can occur almost anywhere. Even a small or friendly dog may suddenly attack a person. It is important to know that if you or a loved one have been attacked by a dog, compensation is available from the dog’s owner. In Ontario, the Dog Owners Liability Act makes the owner responsible for the conduct of the dog. Dog bite claims are generally covered under homeowner or tenant liability insurance. So if your friend’s dog has bitten you, Salehi Law will ensure that your friends’ home insurance covers your claim.
