Cincinnati Dog Bite Lawyers
According to a study by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, approximately 1,000 Americans seek emergency care for injuries related to a dog bite every day. While some of these incidents certainly involve the reckless actions of the injured individual themselves, far too many are the devastating result of another person’s negligence. Dog owners are responsible for ensuring that their dog is properly secured and not able to attack or bite others.

Effects of Dog Bites
When a person is bitten by a dog, not only do they have to contend with the physical consequences of such an attack, but also the emotional and financial repercussions. Some common side effects of dog bites and attacks include the following:
- Emotional trauma
- Broken bones
In order to treat these and other physical and psychological consequences of a dog bite, a victim and their family often have to accrue expensive medical and treatment bills, causing serious financial burdens for which they should not be responsible.
Victims of a dog owner’s negligence and recklessness deserve to hold the owner accountable for the consequences of their dog’s actions.
