Dog Bite Attorney in Columbus

Were you attacked by a dog?

While dog bite attacks may not seem like a big deal, there are close to 4.7 million dog bite victims every year. People suffer serious personal injuries from dog attacks, especially when children are involved. Though we view dogs as great pets—even man's best friend—some are not fit to be around adults or children. When these dogs snap, they can cause great damage, pain and suffering to those involved.

Dog Owner Liability

In most cases, a dog owner will be the one held liable for the damages inflicted by their dog. It doesn't matter if this is the first attack the dog has ever committed, the owner will still be held responsible. Even if the incident occurred on their own property, a case can be built to demonstrate their liability under Ohio premises liability law. So long as the injured party did not intentional provoke the dog, they owner will be held responsible. Whether it was a neighbor, a stranger or a friend's dog, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries.
