ANIMAL BITES (action de papaue claims)

Dog bites
Dog attacks
Animal bites
Animal attacks

Clients come into contact with domestic pets and wild animals under all sorts of different circumstances.

They may have been exposed to cheetahs at a breeding farm or dogs at a friend or neighbours home. When an animal or dog bites or an animal causes harm there may be a claim against the owner of the animal.

This type of animal bite claim dates back to Roman Dutch law and at Malcolm Lyons & Brivik Attorneys inc. we have been successful in instituting different animal injury claims including those pursuant to a cheetah attack, ostrich kick attacks, and of course dog bites.

In each case it is important to identify the owner of the animal and establish the circumstances of the attack. The damages which are recoverable are:

1. Past Medical Expenses
2. Future Medical and Hospital Expenses;
3. Past and Future Loss of Earning; and
4. General Damages.
