Dogs can be wonderful family pets, but sometimes tragedy strikes and an attack happens. Unfortunately, most dog bite cases involve small children and the physical damage incurred can often leave lifelong scars.
Holding Negligent Dog Owners Responsible
Lopez, Severt & Pratt Co represents clients throughout Ohio who have been involved in a dog bite or other animal attack incident. We have experience handling this unique type of personal injury case and we will work hard to ensure you are compensated appropriately for your injuries.
The first step to take after you've been involved in an animal attack is to immediately seek medical attention. After you've been treated, it is important to meet our team of knowledgeable attorneys to help evaluate your case. Things we will consider include:
- Past history of the dog
- Aggression issues of the pet
- Owner liability in animal attacks
- Whether the vicious dog was provoked
- Extent of the injuries and associated medical bills
- Amount of time for healing
- Lasting effects of the injury
Our lawyers will also work with you to gather all of the necessary paperwork and navigate your claim with the pet owner's insurance company. Let us take the burden of handling the details so you can focus on the recovery process.
“I appreciate all their help and hard work.” - Andrea G.
“Very experienced and professional” - Guy C.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.” - Lou M.
It will also be important to know the exact details of how the incident occurred, if any "beware of dog" signs were posted, and whether or not the owner had given previous warnings of the animal's nature prior to the attack. From there, we will be able to help you determine whether your case has enough evidence to move forward and assist you in preparing for the next steps.
