The province of Ontario has enacted the Dog Owners Liability Act in order to ensure that dog owners have a set of rules to follow and potential victims of dog attacks have recourse in the event of an injury caused by a dog. With the majority of dog owners being responsible citizens who keep a watchful eye over their pets, unfortunately negligent owners are still out there and unintended and unprovoked dog attacks still occur.
There can be many reasons for unintended dog attacks, the most common of which is irresponsible owners who disobey the legislation by ignoring leash and muzzle laws. Quite often children and seniors become victims of these attacks but they can happen to anyone. When a dog attacks a person, the resulting injuries can include deep lacerations, puncture wounds, and other injuries which can lead to scarring, damage to nerves and muscles as well as disfigurement.
