Unintended attacks involving man's best friend can have lasting effects on the victim due to the nature of the accident itself and from the resulting injuries. The psychological trauma associated with being violently attacked by a dog can be just as serious as the resulting injuries that can range from puncture wounds and cuts to lacerations, muscle and nerve damage. In the most extreme cases, victims may require several complicated procedures such as facial reconstruction surgery.
The province of Ontario has enacted the Dog Owner's Liability Act which was designed to ensure that dog owners know what their responsibilities are and that victims of dog attacks have legal recourse in the event of an injury to person or property. However, this legislation is set up in a way where the homeowner's insurance company would be liable to pay any damages to the victim, yet the legislation is unclear what recourse is available in certain circumstances such as when the dog owner is a renter.
