Dog Bite Attorneys in Columbus
Committed to Helping You Recover Fair & Full Compensation
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.
Statistics show that more than 70 percent of dog attacks happen to children under the age of 10. At Rourke & Blumenthal, we put our 150+ years of combined legal experience to work for victims of dog bites. Regardless of the age of the individual involved, we do everything we can to secure a fair outcome for our client. When you work with us, you can always count on compassionate and dedicated legal support. Let our firm put our reputation, skill, and results to work on your behalf.
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 intentionally provoke the dog, the owner will be held responsible. Whether it was a neighbor's, a stranger's, or a friend's dog, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries.
