Dog Bite

Parma and Richmond Heights, Ohio, Dog Bite Attorneys

Animal Attack Lawyers Serving the Cleveland Area

In the state of Ohio, when a dog bites or attacks, the dog's owners are financially liable for any injuries or deaths that result. Except in cases involving criminal trespass and the tormenting or abuse of a dog, dog owners are legally responsible for attacks that occur in public, on another person's property or to people legally on the dog owner's property. Since young children cannot be considered capable of making informed, rational decisions, dog owners can also be held liable for attacks when they fail to secure their property against entry by young children. At Russo, Rosalina & Co., our lawyers work with medical economists and medical experts in determining the financial impact of a dog bite or animal attack on our clients. When children are involved, we consult psychologists to evaluate the trauma suffered by a young child and its impact on their sense of well-being.

If you or your child has been the victim of a dog attack, ferret bite, snake bite or other pet bite, contact dog bite lawyers at Russo, Rosalina & Co. today to schedule a consultation to discuss your case.
