This law strictly holds dog owners liable. If the dog(s) have multiple owners, they are held jointly responsible both financially and legally. According to this act, you have the right to bring a civil action against the owner for damages. In addition, they are responsible for any damage from a bite or attack and it doesn’t depend on the owner’s fault, negligence or knowledge of the dog’s tendency to bite or attack. Dogs may be “man’s best friend,” but in Ontario there are strict rules and regulations governing their behaviour. Dog bites can happen when the dog is loose in a neighbourhood, playing in a park or off its leash. Therefore, the owners must be aware of their pet’s actions at all times as they will be held responsible. This is to ensure the safety of others since dog bites can potentially cause severe damage quickly. And we cannot ignore the fact that along with physical injuries, dog bites often cause severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that leaves victims with a high level of anxiety around animals, along with other psychological injuries.

Here are some of the most common types of injuries that can occur from a dog bite:
These are the most obvious outcomes.
This is a common result of dog bites but does require immediate medical attention to prevent further damage.
Dogs have strong jaws that can pierce through clothes and skin and even break victims’ bones. Bones can also break from the victim having an accidental fall due to the attack.
This disease spreads from animals to humans and infects nerves in the brain. If transmitted by dogs, the incubation period is between 14 and 60 days from the time of attack. Even though rabies is still relatively rare, there has been a rise in the number of cases in Canada since 2012, according to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety.
This is an extreme and rare case, where a toxin is transferred to the victim via deep bite wounds, and results in rigid paralysis.
Many victims suffer from PTSD and get anxiety-causing flashbacks of the event.
