The Key Is Identifying the Owner of the Dog That Caused Animal Attack Injuries
Under the laws of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, the owner or handler of a dog is responsible for injuries caused when the animal:
- Chases and knocks a person down
- Bites or mauls a visitor to the property
- Attacks a child visitor on the property
When the owner of the dog has been identified, the personal injury claim is typically paid by a homeowner's or renter's insurance policy or business liability policy. Our Dayton and Cincinnati dog bite attorneys will work to identify all policies that apply, including your own medical coverage, and coordinate the claims to provide maximum benefit.
Dangerous Dogs and Vulnerable Children Bitten by Dog — Our Lawyers Can Help
Unfortunately, children are the most common victims of dog bites, and are susceptible to serious or life-threatening injuries when they are attacked by a dog or other animal. A child may be walking by an unfenced yard, playing in a park or visiting the home of the dog's owner when attacked, and suffer catastrophic injuries. It is the responsibility of the owner to observe leash laws and restrain the animal.
Postal workers, delivery drivers, meter readers and others who have reason to be on a property in the course of their employment are also vulnerable to dog bites.
Are Some Dog Breeds Particularly Vicious?
Certain dog breeds, including the pit bull, Rottweiler, German shepherd and Doberman pinscher, are responsible for more bites than others. However, a dog that is properly restrained and trained will not be given the opportunity to bite. It is that simple. If the dog bites, it is the responsibility of the owner or handler.
