Being attacked by someone’s pet can be an extremely frightening experience. Not only are victims in severe pain, physical scars, but they can also feel defenseless and a heightened sense of panic. After an animal attack or dog bite, you may face expensive medical treatment, permanent scarring, lasting trauma and animal phobias. While nothing can undo what you have gone through, it is important to understand that you may have a legal right to compensation for your injuries.
In Connecticut, an individual can be held legally responsible if his/her pet attacks and injures another person. There are a few exceptions to this law. If you were trespassing on private property or if you tormented or abused the animal, you may not be able to sue for compensation after an animal attack. We at Ganim Legal can help you understand these nuanced laws as they relate to your specific circumstances.
At Ganim Legal, P.C., we are here to help after you have been bitten by a dog or injured by any other animal. Attorney Paul Ganim is a highly experienced personal injury lawyer with over 25 years of practice. He has an in-depth knowledge of animal attack laws in our state and how to secure compensation for a wide range of animal-inflicted injuries.
When you work with our law firm, we will fully investigate the circumstances in your case, looking for every piece of evidence that the animal owner’s negligence resulted in your injuries. This can include:
- Unleashed dogs
- Animals with a history of aggression or attacks
- Dogs escaping through known open gates, or holes in the fence
- Aggressive breeds such as pit bulls and Rottweilers

Medical care comes first following a motorcycle accident. Without the seat belts and enclosures that car and truck drivers enjoy, motorcyclists risk life-changing and sometimes fatal injuries. Medical care is paramount for recovery. Legal representation is vital as well to secure the financial compensation you deserve.
At Ganim Legal, P.C., we fight to even the odds that Connecticut motorcycle accident victims face following an accident. For nearly 25 years, attorney Paul Ganim has fought for the legal rights of his clients by holding negligent parties accountable.
Insurance companies are not on your side. In fact, they will either deny your injury claim or offer you a minimal settlement. Before providing them any details, contact our firm. We will speak on your behalf and build strong, fact-based claims. We know how insurance companies defend themselves against injury claims. In motorcycle accidents, victims are often left paralyzed or suffering traumatic brain injuries.
From the moment we take on your motorcycle accident case, we focus on maximizing your compensation. We combine our experience and legal knowledge with the insight of experts that include accident reconstructionists, medical specialists and life-care planners. On staff, we have a registered nurse who reviews medical records to identify key evidence.
While we prefer to negotiate settlements in personal injury cases, we do not shy away from trial. If arguing a case before a judge or jury can provide the best outcome, we will put our trial experience to work for you and secure favorable verdicts.
