Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Clients Throughout Ohio
Dog Bites

Dog Bite Attorney in Columbus

Holding Negligent Ohio Dog Owners Accountable

Most dog owners take the necessary steps to prevent their dogs from attacking others. They have fences around their yards and keep their dogs on a leash at all times. But if you—or your children—are in the wrong place at the wrong time, it is possible that a dog may attack. Dogs of all shapes, breeds, and sizes can become vicious with little or no notice.

What to Do After a Dog Bite or Attack

After the attack, you need to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. You should try to take photos of the injuries if you are able. It can help with your future claims, as the dog owners may try to avoid responsibility for your condition. It’s also important that you get the contact information of the dog owner, including his or her name and phone number. If there were any witnesses to the incident, and if you are able to do so, take down their names, contact information, and brief statements as well.

Once you have seen a doctor, you should call one of our experienced lawyers to get more information about your case. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your damages, but actually recovering this compensation can be difficult when the dog owner disputes liability or tries to argue that you provoked the dog or were otherwise partially or wholly to blame for the attack.

At Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC, we can assist with all issues associated with dog bite claims, including but not limited to:

  • Bills for emergency room visits
  • Costs for pain and other medication necessary to treat the injury
  • Expenses connected to plastic surgery to help address scarring
  • Treatment needed to reduce infection
  • Lost wages while you are out of work
  • Investigating the incident and evaluating the extent of your damages
  • Negotiating with the liable dog owner/insurance company
  • Gathering evidence in support of your claim
  • Preparing your case for trial, if necessary

You may be reluctant to bring legal action against the dog owner if it is someone know, like a close friend or relative. However, it’s important to remember that most dog owners have homeowners’ insurance. This insurance typically covers dog attacks and bites, and they would be the one responsible for paying you the compensation you need to effectively treat your injuries.
