It is no secret the weather this summer has been brutal. From really high temperatures to super high humidity levels, humans and canines alike have been struggling to beat the summer heat. Discomfort causes both dogs and humans to become more irritable, therefore increasing the likelihood of a New Haven personal injury.

The Humane Society advises keeping a safe distance between yourself and the dog and keep an eye out for these nine behaviors:

  1. Tensed body
  2. Backing away
  3. Stiff tail
  4. Flicking tongue or licking lips
  5. Furrowed brow
  6. Eyes rolling so the whites are visible
  7. Focused stare
  8. Pulled back head and/or ears
  9. Yawning

Connecticut dog bite law is a strict liability statute; meaning unless you are trespassing or are taunting/teasing the dog, the dog’s owner is liable for your injury. Call the New Haven personal injury lawyers at The LoRicco Law Firm to help you handle your claim.
