Fight Back with Powerful Weapons
The law is your weapon. Ohio laws along with your local laws and dog ordinances. These laws allow you to recover compensation for your dog bite injuries. They also dictate what happens to the dog.
In Ohio, the owner, harborer or keeper of a dog is strictly liable for the medical bills and personal injuries thier dog caused. That means you don't have to prove the dog's owner, harborer or keeper was negligent. For example, you don't need to prove the dog's owner left his or her back door open. Because of this, the dog got outside and attacked you.
You simply need to show the dog attacked you and you were injured. That entitles you to recover compensation for things like:
- Loss of Future Earning Capacity
Just because the law allows you to recover compensation for your dog bite injuries doesn't mean it's going to be easy. It can be very difficult to get treated fairly.
When you submit a dog bite claim for your injuries and expenses, it's filed with the insurance company that issued a homeowner's insurance policy to the dog's owner, harborer or keeper.
These big insurance companies employ an army of professionals to make sure you receive as little as possible. Pain and suffering is usually the most significant part of a dog bite claim. Their is a dollar amount that is assigned to the pain and suffering you endured from the dog attack. The amount insurance companies want to pay for pain and suffering will not likely be what it's really worth.
A client came to us asking if the $25,000 an insurance company offered to settle the claim they filed for their son's dog bite injuries was fair. We reviewed the case and determined it was not. They hired us and we recovered $159,000 from the insurance company for our client. An increase of $134,000! This is why it's important to have an experienced dog bite attorney on your side. It makes a big difference.
When you hire us to represent you, it's our job to make sure you are treated fairly by the insurance company. When we are behind you, they won't try to push you around. We are another one of your weapons.

When a Child is Attacked by a Dog
The majority of dog bite cases we handle involve children. These cases need special attention. When a dog attacks a child, it usually causes injuries to the child's arms, legs and face. It may also cause injuries that cannot be easily seen.
The emotional and psychological wounds from a dog bite can be as severe as the physical injuries.
We help children victimized by dog bites get the maximum amount of compensation for all their injuries. For some children, those injuries are something they live with the rest of their lives. They need to be financially prepared.

Injuries From a Dog Knocking You Down
A dog doesn't have to bite you. A dog that jumps on you and knocks you down can also cause serious injuries. Your fall could result in broken bones, deep cuts, a concussion or other types of injuries.
If a dog knocked you down but didn't bite, it's still a dog attack. You may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries. Contact us for a free consultation to discuss what happened.
