Any dog can bite a victim and cause the victim to be injured. A dog bite can cause a victim to suffer many different types of injuries, such as:
A dog bite can also transfer viruses and bacteria that can make the victim become ill. These can transmit rabies or cause an infection. Additionally, a victim can suffer severe emotional trauma following a dog bite and develop mental health conditions like depression or anxiety.
When a victim experiences financial damages related to a dog bite, he or she can pursue monetary compensation through a personal injury claim. Injured victims should be proactive about working with attorneys and filing personal injury claims.
In Ohio, a dog’s owner, harborer or keeper is liable for all the damages their dogs inflict on victims, regardless of whether the dog previously showed signs of aggression or were known to bite. This includes all dog attacks, even attacks that do not involve biting like situations where victims are knocked to the ground and suffer injuries because of a powerful dog’s actions. If the owner, harborer or keeper knew or should have known that the dog was aggressive and did not take care to restrain it or prevent an attack, the owner, harborer or keeper is liable.
One exception to this liability is a case where the victim provoked the dog into attacking and cases where the victim was not authorized to be on the property where the bite occurred. For example, a trespasser who is injured by a guard dog is not entitled to recover compensation for his or her damages, but a victim who is attacked by a dog while visiting the dog’s home or while in public is entitled to compensation.
Through a dog bite claim, you can seek compensation for the following injury-related damages:
The VanNoy Firm can help you obtain and use evidence to support your claim. This evidence can include copies of your medical bills and other bills related to the injury, documentation showing your lost wages, and any other evidence that can demonstrate the severity of the attack like photographs of the injury.
