Dog Attack Lawyer

 
A dog attack can be a very serious injury. In the state of Ohio, the owner of a dog is strictly liable for any injuries caused by that animal. The only exception to this rule is if the owner can prove that the dog was provoked or that the injured party was a trespasser.

One aspect of a dog bite injury to be considered is the scar that will result after the injury has healed. It’s important to understand that a plastic surgeon will not opine as to revision of the scar until at least a year has passed after the injury. Even if the scar can be revised, it usually cannot be completely erased, resulting in some element of permanency to the injury.

In conclusion, please note that it is very important not to rush settlement of this type of case until the severity and permanency of the residual scar can be determined.

Follow our tips to avoid making a mistake with your case

  • It’s very important to document the injury immediately.
  • Photographs need to be taken of the injury as well as the premises upon which the injury occurred.
  • We advise the client to continue taking photographs as the injury heals.
  • If the injury causes a client the inability to work or perform daily living tasks these should be documented and, if possible, witnessed by a family member or friend. They will be valuable witnesses at a trial on the matter.
These cases also present an opportunity for recovery of emotional distress. Please feel free to contact our offices. We will be happy to guide you through the process and prevent you from making mistakes that would diminish the maximum recovery of your case.
