Dog Bites Attorney
A dog or animal bite can be extremely traumatizing and cause catastrophic, permanent, even fatal injuries to a victim. If you or someone you love suffered a dog bite or was attacked, you can take legal action against the negligent dog owner or caretaker for your injuries. At Freking Myers & Reul, LLC, we are experienced in handling cases related to severe or catastrophic injuries resulting from dog bites or other animal attacks.
Dog owners in Ohio are almost always liable for any injuries caused by their pets. If you or your child has suffered an injury as a result of a dog bite, you are very likely to recover a significant settlement or verdict for your injuries. Contact our offices for a free evaluation of your case.
If you have suffered disfigurement or scarring, our attorneys will help you to get the financial compensation you deserve as well as any additional medical treatment you may need. Many of our clients have been forced to obtain reconstructive surgery. In the event that you have sustained scarring or other disfigurement as a result of a dog or animal bite, we can help you get the financial compensation you need to recover and restore your physical and mental health.
We are experienced pursuing legal actions for all of the following:
- Animal attacks
- Dog bites
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Leash law violations
- Nerve damage
- Aggressive breeds and dangerous dogs
Victims of dog bites are often children because they are vulnerable, curious, and usually cannot protect themselves. Children may trust the dog and be more likely to get in an attack situation. If your child was injured by a dog bite, our attorneys will seek to recover maximum compensation for any serious injuries such as scarring, disfigurement, or even emotional trauma.
Many times, a dog bite injury will be covered by a homeowner’s insurance policy. We will pursue claims against all negligent and responsible parties and seek to recover from an insurance company when possible. Unfortunately, some breeds are excluded from homeowner’s insurance policies. In the event that the dog was not covered by the policy we will identify every potential source of recovery and aggressively pursue your claim.
