Dog Bite Lawyer – For the Best Outcome, Consult with an Expert!
Dogs bite millions of Americans every year and the majority of victims are children. As dog and animal attacks can result in both physical and emotional scars, a skilled dog bite lawyer can offer the legal help you need. Many bite wounds require medical treatment, such as reconstructive surgery, and in severe cases, dog and animal attacks can even cause death.
Who should pay?
According to Ohio law, dog owners are typically responsible for costs associated with injuries caused by their dogs, including medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. There are exceptions to the law: if the bite victim is committing a crime, such as trespass, or if he or she is teasing the dog, the owner may not be liable.
