In Ontario, the Dog Owner’s Liability Act states that dog owners are liable for a dog bite, even if the dog has never bitten or shown aggression before.
As the victim, you do not need to prove that the owner has done something wrong. They are liable and you are entitled to compensation.
If you or your loved one has been bitten by a dog, you may be able to be sue for
¨ Lost wages
¨ Out of pocket expenses
¨ Pain and suffering
The court may reduce your compensation if they feel that you have contributed to the dog bite.
