When Is Ansonia - Milford the Proper Venue For an Injury Claim Arising From a Connecticut Dog Bite or Dog Knockdown Accident?

"Venue" refers to where your Connecticut dog bite or dog knockdown injury lawsuit should be filed. If a motor vehicle accident lawsuit is filed in the wrong Connecticut courthouse, it could be transferred or dismissed.

The proper venue for a Connecticut lawsuit seeking money damages for serious injury arising from an accident involving a dog bite or dog knockdown depends on one of three criteria: (1) where the injured party resides; (2) where the the owner or keeper of the dog resides; or (3) where the dog bite or dog knockdown occurred if neither party resides in Connecticut.

According to Connecticut General Statutes Section 51-344 (1), the courthouse for the Judicial District of Ansonia - Milford (located at 14 West River Street, Milford 06460) would be the proper venue for your dog bite claim if the above criteria are met for any of the following Connecticut towns: Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Derby, Milford, Orange, Oxford, Seymour, Shelton and West Haven.

In addition, even though the following towns are not located in the Judicial District of Ansonia-Milford, we can choose to file a dog bite claim there if you or the owner or keeper live in any of the following Connecticut towns: Bethany, Milford, West Haven, Woodbury; or Southbury. See Connecticut General Statutes Section 51-345 (c) and (d).
