Call as Soon as Possible
If you or a family member has suffered serious injuries in a dog bite attack, the insurance company for the dog owner may contact you. They may ask you questions and even make an offer of compensation. By making statements to them, you may limit your ability to obtain full compensation. Before talking with the insurance company, you should speak with a lawyer at Godbey Law.
We can discuss the potential value of your case and explain the legal process.
Fortunately, Ohio law contains a strict liability provision for dog owners. This can make it easier to obtain compensation for injuries suffered in a dog bite attack. Under this provision, you have one year from the date of the attack to file your claim. Under the common law provision, you have two years to file a claim, but it is generally more difficult to obtain compensation in that circumstance.
You should call as soon as possible after a dog attack. Evidence vital to your case can quickly begin to disappear. The attorneys at Mark Godbey Law will begin work immediately on your case.
Our goal will be to maximize the compensation you receive – so that you or your loved one can make the fullest recovery possible.
