How To Prove Liability After a Dog Bite or Attack
Even though dogs are considered to be “man’s best friend”, the inevitable truth is that dogs can pose a serious risk of harm. Even the most friendly or docile dogs may unexpectedly attack or bite someone.
Attacks and bites can lead to:
- Medical injuries
- And psychological suffering
- Occasionally, injuries can even be fatal
What Is the Dog Owners Liability Act Ontario?
Under the Dog Owner’s Liability Act in Ontario, a dog’s owner is held responsible for injuries caused in an attack. These owners are liable to pay compensation for any injuries or losses that his or her dog may have caused.
When assessing compensation for a victim, a court will decide based on a couple of factors, including:
- If the victim’s life will be affected
- Whether future surgeries will be needed
- If the injuries are permanent
- Whether the victim had to miss work due to his or her injuries
- Whether the victim spent money on medical matters

Can You Receive Compensation for a Dog Bite?
Not everyone is entitled to claim compensation in the event of a dog attack. Each case is different and built upon unique circumstances.
The court will also consider the events that led to the attack and whether the victim’s actions contributed to the dog bite. For example, if the victim tried chasing the dog and the dog reacted by biting, then the court might not view the owner as responsible.
What Are the Effects of a Dog Bite Case?
Since each case is different, there is no guarantee to the outcome of a case. Depending on the injuries sustained and circumstances, the court will decide upon a fair and justified action.
For the protection of the public, the court might order:
- Court ordered confinement of property and warning signs
- Mandatory leashes or muzzles
- Owner fines
- Mandatory sterilization
- Preventing further dog ownership for a period of time
