Dog bites and dog attacks result in countless serious injuries every day. According to a study from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are about 4.7 million dog bites each year (roughly 12,875 per day). In fact, dog bites are so common and so severe that Ohio Revised Code Section 955.28 was enacted specifically to protect injured parties’ right to recover compensation for dog bite and dog attack injuries.
Nearly 1 in 5 people bitten by a dog requires medical attention. Contact the Cleveland dog bite attorneys at Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA to discuss your rights and claims if a dog has caused any type of injury, including:
