Yes. Connecticut General Statutes Sec. 22-357 allows a claim for recovery of legal damages from an “owner” or “keeper” of a dog. Damages might include compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, the impairment of earning capacity, permanent injury, scarring, disfigurement and pain. In addition, certain situations would also allow claims under Connecticut’s “common law”. It is important to consult with a lawyer with experience in this area to discuss your specific case.
Yes. This firm accepts these matters on a “contingency” fee basis. This means that there will only be a legal fee charged if there is a financial recovery in connection with your case. If there is a financial recovery, the contingency fee charged will be consistent with those charges allowed under Connecticut law along with any case related expenses. If there is no financial recovery, you will owe us nothing.
