COLUMBUS DOG BITE ATTORNEYS
Animals can be a great addition to a family, but when they cause accidents -- generally a bite or attack -- its owner should be held responsible. If you or somebody you know has been hurt by a dog or other pet, you should be compensated for your injuries and suffering.
Under the right circumstances, homeowner's insurance can be used to cover the damages from dog bites and other pet-related injuries caused by aggressive animals. Getting full compensation from the insurance company calls for a Columbus, Ohio dog bite lawyer. Without one, insurance coverage will only offer 10 to 20 percent of the full amount you deserve.

Not all dog or animal bite cases go to trial, because some decide to settle outside of the courtroom. If your case does go to trial, The Keating Firm LTD. will represent you in court to get the maximum compensation you deserve.
WHAT DO I DO AFTER I’VE BEEN BITTEN?
Smart pet owners know that even the cutest animal can be unpredictable. Pets provide their owners with love and protection. However, when an animal feels threatened, scared, or cornered, they may respond in a hostile way like growling or even biting someone.
In Ohio, the law states that all animal and pet owners are held liable for the actions of their pets even if they never thought their animal would have aggressive behavior or go after another person. There are quite a few steps you or your family can take after a dog bite to make sure you get a settlement that will help you fully recover both medically and financially from the injury.
Dog owners are held accountable for the victims’ expenses that are related to their injuries and for their pain and suffering. However, if the victims were trespassing on the dog owner’s property, or teasing, tormenting, taunting or abusing the dog before it attacked them, the owner will not be held liable.
