If you are a victim of a dog bite attack in New London, Connecticut you will be relieved to learn that Connecticut imposes strict liability on the owner or keeper of the dog for damage to person or property from a dog attack.  In short, that means you will have a good case.  But you should not relax too much.  

But you must not forget about the dangers of tetanus and rabies.  Even if you have what appears to be a small cut or bite mark you definately have to get a tetanus shot.  Got to your local ER or family doctor for that.  Next, make sure you confirm that the dog has up to date rabies shot papers.  The dog warden will help you with that.  If the dog's rabies papers are not up to date the dog will have to be quaranteened to see if rabies signs develope, and the dog might have to be put down and examined for rabies.
