Contact Connecticut Dog Bite Attorney

Tim O'Keefe at (860) 930-4200

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.
