Vicious dogs can cause lifelong scarring and injuries. In Ohio, the law holds owners of dogs responsible for injuries the animals cause unless the dog was being tormented or harassed when it bit.
A claim can generally be brought under the homeowners or renters insurance of the dogs owner. If you have been bitten by a dog it is important to notify the police, and the county health department of the attack. Dog bite victims should also be sure to take pictures of their injuries, both at the time of the initial injury, and as the wounds heal. Before you talk with the insurance companies, be sure to call Ice Law Offices for a free consultation.
