Cleveland Dog Bite Injury Attorneys
Powerful Representation for Victims of Animal Attacks
Ohio law on dog bites is clear. Dog owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by their dogs. That means the owner (or other person who had control of the dog at the time, a kennel, for example) is responsible for compensating the attack victim. Under Ohio law, you have the right to seek compensation even if the dog had never bitten anyone before.
Lallo & Feldman is aggressive in pursuing claims on behalf of children and adults who have been bitten by dogs in Lake County, Ashtabula County and throughout northeast Ohio. Our Cleveland dog bite injury lawyers are prepared to guide you through the legal system. We offer free initial consultations, and we do not charge any attorney’s fees unless we recover compensation for you.
Children Are Often the Victims
It is estimated that about two-thirds of dog bite victims are children. Animal attacks leave lasting physical and emotional scars on children and their parents. We do everything we can to help children and families obtain the financial resources they need to pay for surgeries and counseling, and to compensate for emotional harm and pain and suffering suffered by the child.
Common Dog Bite Injuries
Personal injury claims based on dog bites typically include very serious injuries, such as:
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Nerve damage
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other emotional and psychological trauma
In most circumstances, the main source of compensation in a dog bite case is the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance policy. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who will not settle your claim for less than you deserve. If a trial becomes necessary, you can rely on our decades of courtroom experience to protect your rights.
