At Your Side Following A Traumatic Animal Attack
Ohio law mandates that dog owners are responsible for the costs and expenses associated with a dog bite or attack. Negligence is not an issue. Unless the victim trespasses or torments the animal, the owner is accountable for the resulting injuries.
Strict liability also applies to those responsible for temporarily caring for dogs (friends or family) or the individuals controlling the area where the dog lives (parents or landlords).
Dog bite claims are unique in that they go beyond physical injuries and scars. Emotional scarring can result, particularly tragic for those whose love for dogs has become a phobia. In determining damages, this type of psychological trauma plays a significant role, in addition to:
- Medical expenses, including cosmetic surgery
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
During your initial consultation, we will provide you with a candid assessment of your dog bite claim. From there, we will educate you on your options and help you make an informed decision in moving forward. Throughout the entire legal process, we remain at your side, fighting for maximum compensation.
