Dog Bites Injury Lawyers

In Ontario, dog bites or attacks are governed by the Dog Owners’ Liability Act. The Act makes the “owner” of a dog liable for all damages resulting from a dog bite or dog attack on a person or another domestic animal. It is not necessary for the dog to bite and break the skin before an action can be commenced. If you have been injured as the result of a dog scratch, being jumped on or knocked down by a dog, or even tripping and falling as the result of an attack by a dog, the Act may apply and you may have a claim against the owner of the dog. The Dog Bites Injury Lawyers of Paciocco& Mellow can review the law with you and tell you whether or not you have a claim.

Mandatory mediation will normally take place at office of the plaintiff’s lawyer. The mediation usually begins with all the parties, their lawyers and the mediator meeting in one room. Each lawyer will give a presentation concerning their client’s case. The mediator may ask questions to help clarify the issues in dispute. After the initial presentations are complete, each side goes into a separate room and the mediator carries offers back and forth. The mediator may also provide his or her thoughts to each of the parties. However, the mediator does not tell the other side anything that is discussed in the private rooms without the permission of that party.
