Dog Bites

Dog Bite Attorneys in Connecticut

Representation for Animal Attack Claims

At Carter Mario Law Firm, we love dogs — but we also understand they can be dangerous when they act aggressively.

If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, our attorneys can make sure the law is upheld and help you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Accountability, Negligence, and Leash Laws

Dog owners have a responsibility to keep pets restrained and under control around other people — and can be held legally accountable if their dogs injure others.

According to Connecticut law, dogs are not allowed to roam on another person’s property, in state parks, on sidewalks, or onto public roads if not under control.

Animal control officers may seize any:

  • Roaming or Unleashed Dogs
  • Dogs Without Tags or Plates
  • Dogs Found Injured on Roads
  • Dogs Subjected to Cruelty
  • Abandoned, Unclaimed Dogs

Who is Responsible for a Dog Bite?

Dog bite statutes make owners or keepers liable for damage or injury a dog causes to a person or property — unless a person was teasing, abusing, or tormenting a dog. This strict liability statute does not require the victim to prove the dog’s owner or keeper knew a dog was vicious or was otherwise negligent.

Under certain circumstances, other parties could be held responsible as well.

At Carter Mario Law Firm, we have decades of combined legal experience negotiating dog bite injury cases. We understand what it takes to get our client’s maximum compensation for the losses they have suffered—and to do so in a timely manner.

We understand state and federal laws—and will create a results-driven strategy crafted specifically around the details of your case. After carefully reviewing the evidence, we will file a claim seeking full, fair compensation for your injuries.
