Experienced Legal Support For Animal Attack Victims

The province of Ontario holds dog owners to a principle of strict liability under The Dog Owners' Liability Act (DOLA). This means that if a dog bites or attacks a person or other domestic animal, the dog's owner is automatically considered liable for their pet's actions. It is important to note that even if the owner claims that their dog was behaving out of character or had no previous instances of aggression, they will still be held responsible. In instances where it is determined that the victim may have provoked the animal, damages paid may be reduced.
