Dog Bites and Attacks

Personal Injury Lawyer


Animals cannot be held responsible for their own actions and unpredictable behavior. As such, the onus falls upon the pet owner in the event of an attack.

While it is hard to imagine that a dog could cause any harm, in reality many people are injured every year as a result of dog bites and attacks. Some attacks can lead to serious disfigurement and scarring, leading to years of physical and emotional pain.

If you have been attacked by a dog, you should:

  • Seek medical attention immediately
  • Ask the owner if the dog’s shots are up to date
  • Record the address and phone number of the dog owner
  • Take photographs of the injured area
  • Retain all copies of your bills

If you have been injured and are wondering if you have a claim against the dog owner, speak with Grillo Barristers today to discuss your case.

My wife & I had the pleasure of working with Alexander Lee and Ikbir Khongura. They were excellent in research and information, They both were on time and ready.. very professional and determined to get the best results for us. They worked very hard and made sure we as clients were comfortable, happy and well taken care of! Most importantly they are fighters, they made sure our best interest were put first and our needs were met. A lot of lawyers don't really care, but they made sure justice was served! They did an amazing job in taking care of us and will be recommending their services!

From the moment Grillo Barristers took on my case, until I was able to come to my desired settlement, they have been nothing but amazing, caring and professional. I had an amazing team working on my case, and couldn't believe how well and timely my file was handled. My lawyer Anthony Andreopoulos, with the tremendous help of Justine and Zachary, constantly kept me updated with every action that was taken on the file and made me feel at ease knowing my case was in good hands. I couldn't have asked for a better firm to handle my file, so thank you guys so much for everything, I appreciate it more than you know!

I worked with Rachelle Mitri and her team and I found the company in general and Rachelle in particular to be extremely professional, while being nice people to work with. Ms. Mitri kept me informed of my case. And guided me through an unfamiliar system with great diligence. I always felt valued and respected. Great Lawyers !

It's unbelievable how long it takes for the insurance companies to settle. They live by the fact that they can outlast you! Don't give up! Hang in there! Stefanie and her team worked hard and did an excellent job. I received the best settlement available!!!

Where do I begin?? I am not usually one to leave reviews on services but this one is definitely an exception. From start to finish, I felt incredibly comfortable having my claim in Grillo's hands. I felt as though the team was in complete control and I could just sit back and receive updates when necessary. With the utmost confident I can say that Grillo Barristers is the best personal injury law firm in Toronto. The process was quick, cheap and stress free. I must especially thank Lauren Sivitilli. Having very limited knowledge of lawsuits, Lauren was able to perfectly break the processes down for me and educate me on my claim. She was quick to answer emails addressing any concerns and always kept me up to date. I will definitely be recommending Grillo Barristers services to my family, friends and coworkers. Amazing!
