Dog bites can cause serious injury or even death, especially when the victim is a young child. In Ontario, owners are strictly liable for the behavior of their dogs. Even if a dog has shown no previous signs of aggression, if it bites someone, the owner is on the hook if the victim decides to pursue compensation. In some cases, compensation may be reduced - for instance, if the victim was provoking the dog.
