Have you or a loved one

been bitten or injured by a dog?

Tim O'Keefe at (860) 246-2700

In Connecticut, a dog bite or an injury caused by an attacking dog is the legal responsibility of the owner or “keeper” of the dog, even if the dog does not have a history of violence or dangerous acts.

If you or a loved one have suffered an injury as a result of a dog bite or a dog attack, please contact me, Timothy L. O’Keefe, Esq., a Connecticut Dog Bite Attorney, to discuss a claim for financial compensation. My firm and I have years of experience in representing victims of dog attacks, bringing cases to trial and negotiating many settlements.

Serious dog attacks can result in significant injuries including scarring, nerve injuries, puncture wounds and infection. In addition, many suffer injuries in connection with fending off dog attacks. Dog owners should be held legally accountable for these injuries.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association:

  • An estimated 4.7 million Americans will be bitten this year.
  • Primary victims are children.
  • As many as 800,000 people annually require medical treatment for dog bites.
  • About 12 people each year die from dog attacks.
  • Dog bites most commonly affect the arm/hand (45.3%), leg/foot (25.8%), and head/neck (22.8%).
  • Young children are most frequently bitten in the head and neck region.

Contact me even if you’re unsure if you have a case. We can discuss the incident at no charge to you.

Verdict Beats Final Settlement Offer

Connecticut Dog Bite Lawyer Tim O’Keefe has obtained a verdict at Waterbury Superior Court for a dog injury claim.  “Whenever we feel that the liability insurance carrier is not treating our client fairly, we will prepare our case for a trial and present the evidence in court.  This was such a case.  The court’s verdict was several thousand dollars more than the insurance carrier’s final settlement offer.  We are very pleased with the outcome in this case.”  Tim O’Keefe

PIT BULL ATTACK IN WATERBURY

Connecticut Dog Bite Lawyer Tim O’Keefe has been hired by a pit bull attack victim in Waterbury, Connecticut.  “Apparently this dog has a history of prior attacks so there is a question as to why the building owner was still allowing the dog to be housed in this building.  We intend to fully investigate that issue.  The injuries are very serious and include wounds to our client’s face”  Tim O’Keefe

Waterbury Dog Bite Trial

Connecticut Dog Bite Lawyer Tim O’Keefe recently tried a dog bite case at Waterbury Superior Court.  “While most of these cases do not go to a formal trial, there are some occasions when the defendant’s liability insurance carrier is not treating our client fairly.  That is why we prepare every single one of our cases for trial.  We get much better results that way.  This particular case involved a very significant hand injury.  When the insurance company refused to offer a fair settlement, we presented the case to the court.  We are waiting for the court’s decision but we fully expect the final verdict to exceed the last offer made by the insurance company.”  Tim O’Keefe
