According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), over 4.7 million people in the United States every year suffer injuries resulting from dog bites. Out of this number, around 800,000 people seek medical attention for their injuries after dog bites, and half of the victims are children. Out of those injured, around 386,000 people require treatment in an emergency room, and around a  dozen die.  Our specialized dog bite attorneys can help you.  


Consequences of Dog Bites


Being attacked by an uncontrolled dog is, in and of itself, a frightening experience. But when an animal attack leads to serious personal injury, you have a right to hold the animal’s owner accountable and seek compensation for your losses.


Some of the most common injuries sustained after a dog bite include:


  • Puncture wounds

  • Nerve damage

  • Infection

  • Disfigurement


Emotional trauma is another significant consequence of an animal attack that should not be underestimated. Our experienced Cincinnati dog bite attorneys at the Law Offices of Blake R. Maislin, LLC have years of experience helping victims in Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeastern Indiana pursue the compensation they deserve after an unprovoked animal attack. While you focus on recovering from your dog bite, we will protect your legal rights and fight for justice on your behalf.


Compensation for Dog Bites or Animal Attacks


In Ohio, dog bites fall under the category of “strict liability.” This means that in almost every circumstance, the dog owner is automatically responsible for any damages an uncontrolled animal inflicts. Unfortunately, being responsible for damages and actually paying them are two completely different things.


If a dog owner is insured, we can fight to get compensation from his or her homeowner’s insurance company. However, many dog owners either do not have homeowner's insurance, or they are underinsured and not covered for these types of events. If this is the case, we can look into alternate sources of revenue, including but not limited to your own health insurance company. We will do everything possible to ensure you are provided compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and personal pain and suffering.


If you have been attacked by an uncontrolled animal in Ohio, Northern Kentucky, or Southeastern Ohio, please contact the Law Offices of Blake R. Maislin, LLC today to schedule a free case evaluation with an experienced Cincinnati dog bite attorney.
