Dog Bite Claim Against Property Owner Settled Before Trial

Connecticut Dog Bite Lawyer Tim O’Keefe has settled a dog bite claim against the owner of real property where a dog attack occurred.  The property owner was not the owner or keeper of the dog that attacked a small boy.  The case was settled for $27,500.00.  “This was a very challenging legal claim given the factual circumstances of the case.  The dog’s owner did not have liability insurance and we had to bring the claim against the company that owned the property.  This settlement will allow this young boy to pay for any future medical care that might be necessary as a result of his injury.”  Tim O’Keefe

Statutes of Limitation Applicable to Injuries Caused By Dogs

I receive many telephone calls and e-mail inquiries from people who have been harmed by a dog’s attack.  The first legal question that must be answered in these situations is whether or not it is still possible to file a claim under Connecticut’s Statute of Limitations.  In Connecticut, if a dog causes damage to a person or property, a claim for legal damages can be bought against the owner and/or keeper of the dog under C.G.S. Section 22-357.  There is no specific time deadline for filing set out in that statute. Accordingly, our courts have held that the time deadline for claims against the owner and/or keeper of the dog will be governed by C.G.S. Sec. 52-577. That statute provides for a three year time deadline within which to file a claim.

But be careful!  In some situations, the most likely means of recovering financial compensation for a dog attack may be against the owner of the property where the dog attack occurs.  The property owner is not always the dog’s owner (e.g. property rental situations).  In those cases, the claim filed would be a negligence claim against the property owner.  Those claims are governed by C.G.S. Sec. 52-584.  That statute requires that a claim be filed within a two year deadline.

If you have any questions about the Statute of Limitations that applies to your situation, please contact me directly for a Free Consultation. I handle Dog Attack Claims in all Connecticut Courts.
