Dog Bites Leave Physical And Emotional Injuries
While people might not initially think of it, a dog bite (or animal attack) can cause serious and significant injuries. Depending on circumstances, these injuries can produce nerve damage, scarring and the need for extensive rehabilitation.
If you have suffered a serious injury due to an animal attack, it is important to understand your rights and what you may be entitled to by law. We are here to help you do precisely that. Our lawyers at Colley Shroyer Abraham in Columbus have spent decades standing up for the rights of injury victims. We know how to handle these tough, tragic cases.
Dog Owners Are Responsible When Their Pets Cause Harm
It is important to realize that, even for one bite, an owner can be held liable under Ohio law. Ohio does not have a “one free bite” rule. This means you don’t have to prove that the dog has previously bitten someone in order to obtain compensation. Nor do you have to prove that the dog’s owner was negligent in any way. As long as you weren’t provoking the dog, or trespassing when you got bit, you can hold the owner liable.
This strict liability standard makes it easier for those harmed by dog bites to get compensation.
