Our attorneys ready to help Ohio dog bite victims. We are a team of specialist ready to ease your suffering and get you through your Ohio dog bite injury lawsuit.
Dogs are among the most common pets in the United States. Despite their popularity, dog owners must deal with an increased amount of responsibility that is rarely reflected in other common house pets.
Owners must be ready to feed, bathe, walk and groom their canines. Along with those basic responsibilities, dog owners should understand Ohio dog bite laws, in case the unfortunate were to occur.
According to a study from the Center for Disease Control, approximately 4.7 million dog bites occur in the US each year, and 800,000 need medical attention.
If you were bitten and injured, it is important to contact a dog bite attorney. We can assist you in pursuing litigation against the dog owner and/or against the homeowner’s insurance policy. Hiring a dog bite injury attorney like the legal professionals at Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP, is necessary in receiving the compensation you are entitled to.
If you were bitten and injured by a dog, chances are you can take legal action against the dog owner and/or against the homeowner’s insurance policy.
Ohio Revised Code Section 955.28(B) states that a dog owner, keeper or harborer is liable for any injury caused by a dog if:
Should your incident not have stemmed from any of the above, you may want to take legal action against the dog owner and/or against the homeowner’s insurance policy.
To bring a lawsuit against a dog owner and/or against the homeowner’s insurance policy in Ohio, you can approach the case from a ‘strict liability’ standpoint or from a negligence standpoint.
Strict liability litigation applies to cases in which the dog directly violates the statutes listed in the ORC above. Simply speaking, these are standard cases. The burden of proof lies with the dog owner, as they must prove the injured person was committing a crime, trespassing or provoking the animal resulting in the bite.
To pursue a lawsuit on the grounds of negligence, the injured person must prove that the dog owner acted in an irresponsible manner, which directly led to the bite or other incident. Barkan Meizlish LLP can assist you in pursuing either kind of lawsuit.

“Bob DeRose was a huge help in getting my complaint settled. They were responsive and a huge help with all my questions. Would recommend them to anyone who needs help!”
My experience with this Law firm was phenomenal. I found my way into their offices after an unexpected workplace injury. Initially I was clueless about their performance.
The fact that I was not merely looking out for a supplement for my financial budget, I was simply there to explore whatever compensation was due me since the injury legitimately occcured “during and in the course of my employment”.
After an initial visit to the offices where the necessary documentation were initiated, the rest were simply a phone call for updates. Sometimes it was even needless.
They frankly discussed the pathway as well as the unpredictability of the timing for the process.This was necessary. I took that in good faith. The fact that there was no upfront payment was also a good thing.
Without monitoring my calendar, I waited patiently for the various
phases of the process to unfold.
Finally the claim was settled with so much transparency. The unpredictable journey ended with a check delivered to my mailbox.
In fact communications from this Law office is always expedient. The Front Desk Associate was very helpful and polite at all times. My attorney’s paralegal was always available to play her part whenever necessary.“
“They are top-notch attorneys who are experts in their fields. They do great work and are easy to work with. They care about their clients and always try to do the best job possible for them.”
“I had an amazing experience working with Sandy and Robin on my case. Robin was just a short email or call away from all of my questions. The communication I had with Sandy was just as great. Both Sandy and Robin made sure I knew exactly what was going on with my case at all times. I will be recommending them to others. If I ever need help legal matters in the future, I know I can get the help from Sandy Meizlish.”
