Owners Are Responsible for Injuries Caused by Their Pets
More than 4 million people are bitten by dogs every year. Many of these turn out to be serious injuries that include infection and scarring. In Ohio, owners are "strictly liable" for their pets, meaning that someone who is bitten doesn't have to prove that the owner was negligent. Considering that many of these injuries involve reconstructive surgery, it is important that if you have been bitten, you are able to recover the costs involved in healing from these wounds.
In many cases, a dog owner's insurance company will provide insurance coverage for the dog bite. This means that you might beneift from a lawyer representing you so that you can recover not only your medical expenses, but also compensation for pain, suffering, lost wages, scarring and disfigurement.
