Who is responsible for my injuries when I am attacked by a dog?

In the majority of dog attacks, the liable party is the owner of the animal that caused injury to the victim. When dog owners fail to look after or secure their pets in a manner that keeps nearby people safe, they create a serious hazard that puts others at risk of serious injury. Thus, these negligent pet owners can be held liable for any resulting expenses, such as doctor or hospital bills from medical treatment. In some situations, the circumstances of the attack may mitigate the owner’s liability, such as when the victim deliberately provokes the dog into a violent response or is trespassing on the owner’s property.

If you have questions about your rights as a dog attack victim, contact an experienced Cincinnati personal injury lawyer at Stepleton Dugan, LLC, today by calling 513-321-7733.
