Dog Bite Lawyers in Connecticut

Representing Clients Statewide

People should not have to fear being bitten by a dog during their regular walks around the neighborhood or at any point in their day to day lives. At the Law Offices of James A. Welcome, we are passionate about protecting victim’s rights, especially when those victims are the children or the elderly as they are more susceptible to serious injury following an animal attack.

Connecticut's Leash Laws

While dogs are not required to be on leashes at all times, the State of Connecticut does mandate that roaming laws be upheld.

A dog’s owner must not let their dog roam on the following:

  • Another individual’s property
  • State parks
  • Public highways
  • Sidewalks

If a dog is in these areas, it must be under the control of the owner.

Who Is Liable for a Dog Bite?

Connecticut is a strict liability state, meaning that the victim does not have to prove that the owner knew that the dog was vicious or that the owner was negligent. The owner is liable for any injuries or damages caused by the dog, unless the dog was being abused or tormented by the individual.
