Cincinnati Dog Bite Lawyers

Compensation for victims of animal attacks

Dogs are considered mankind’s best friend. Yet these typically loyal, friendly creatures can cause devastating damage when they attack. Often the victims of attacks are young children and elderly individuals who are unable to defend themselves or escape. However, even a strong, fit adult may be no match for a vicious canine.

Cincinnati law firm Young, Reverman & Mazzei Co., L.P.A. was established in 1972 to help injured victims recover from harm they suffered as the result of people’s negligence. Our diligent attorneys can assist you in recovering compensation for a violent dog or animal attack.

What we do to help you

Many homeowners’ insurance policies cover dog bite claims. However, the first offer from an insurance company usually does not reflect the full value of your claim. Our experienced team negotiates for the damages for:

  • Past medical bills
  • Anticipated costs of treatments
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Physical disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Pain
  • Emotional trauma
  • Phobias
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Scarring

If the dog owner does not have insurance or the insurance company refuses to settle for the full amount to which you are entitled, we may file a lawsuit.

Ohio’s strict liability statutes

Ohio has enacted strict liability statutes that in most cases hold owners strictly liable for damage caused by their dogs. If you were not teasing the dog or trespassing on the property, the dog owner is responsible for your injuries.

Common law governing serious canine attack injuries

Often, dogs that attack have been mistreated or abused. In some cases, they are raised specifically to inflict harm on humans. If the owner knew the dog was vicious before it attacked you, you may be able to recover for punitive damages. After a no-obligation free case review, we determine whether to file a claim under common law. Although the standards of proof are higher, the potential recovery is also greater.
