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.

Fairfield American Bulldog Attack Case to Go to Trial

Connecticut Dog Bite Lawyer Tim O’Keefe reports that the case involving a serious dog attack of a child in Fairfield will be going to trial in September.  “The insurance carrier for the dog’s owner refuses to offer anything to settle this claim.  Our investigation demonstrates that the dog’s owner is lying about which one of his dogs attacked this child.  The attack was brutal and the injuries were awful.  This child will be scarred for life.  We intend to ask the jury to consider all of the evidence in this case and deliver a just verdict.”  Tim O’Keefe

Danielson Dog Attack Claim Settled for $22,500.00

Connecticut Dog Bite Lawyer Tim O’Keefe has settled a dog bite claim for a Danielson boy for $22,500.00.  “Luckily, the medical expenses for this injury were less than $1,000.00.  It was, however, a very frightening experience for this young boy and we needed to make sure he was properly compensated under Connecticut law for his harms and losses.  Before we became involved, the dog owner’s insurance carrier refused to offer this boy’s family anything to compensate him for his damages.  We are gratified that we were able to obtain just compensation for this young boy.” Tim O’Keefe
