We Protect The Legal Rights Of Dog Bite Victims

A dog attack can be a life-altering event for a child, an adult bitten by a dog or chased and injured while performing work duties, or any other victim.

Consequences can include scarring and permanent disfigurement, risk of infectious disease and more. In every case, seeking prompt medical attention is critical. In many, the next step you should take is to consult an attorney with extensive experience handling complex personal injury claims.

Caring And Determined Representation For The Injured

We take dog bite cases seriously at The Skolnick Weiser Law Firm, LLC. While establishing dog owner liability for your own or your child’s injuries can be challenging, we are up to that challenge. Applying decades of trial and settlement negotiating experience, we focus on helping our clients get all available compensation and rebuild their lives.

Dog bite law in Ohio is somewhat complex, with many nuances to consider. One important thing to know is that a dog does not have to have bitten before or be known as dangerous for a dog bite claim or lawsuit to be valid. In carefully evaluating your potential case, we will consider:

  • The seriousness of physical, and sometimes emotional, injuries suffered as a result of the dog attack
  • The availability of witness testimony or other evidence that the dog attack was unprovoked and unavoidable under the circumstances
  • Other relevant issues such as a dog’s prior history of biting others or exhibiting threatening behavior
  • Whether applicable insurance coverage or another source of financial recovery makes pursuit of the claim worthwhile for you and your family
