Put Decades of Legal Experience in Your Corner

The State of Ohio over the recent years has made HUGE improvements with how dogs and exotic animals are treated and maintained. Ohio was once on the radar for insurance agencies, as we used to be one of the top states for reported animal attacks and dog bites. Unfortunately, even with drastic improvements, Ohio still has a high number of dog and animal attacks. It is NOT just the physical damage caused after an animal-related injury, it is also the mental anxiety that follows for years after. Some victims experience lifelong PTSD from violent animal encounters. A Toledo Dog Bite Attorney can not only fight to get your medical bills and cosmetic surgery needs covered but can also fight to get you financially compensated for your mental pain and suffering. Rubin & Zyndorf have won over 100 MILLION dollars for their clients. Call NOW for a free dog bite injury consultation.

Rubin and Zyndorf is a premier Toledo law firm. Daryl Rubin and Sol Zyndorf have over 70 years of combined injury litigation experience. One area that they both take personal stances on is when children are injured. Often, dog bite-related injury claims are submitted on behalf of young ones who have been bitten in the face or mauled to the point of needing multiple rounds of plastic surgery. Rubin & Zyndorf take these cases personally and fight to not only protect your children but the ensure that the dog and owner responsible are dealt with, within the highest limits of the law.

When is a Dog Owner Liable for A Dog Bite?

According to the Ohio Revised Code Section 955.28(B), a dog owner is liable for the injuries their pet inflicts if:

  • The animal’s actions caused the injury

  • The injury victim was not "committing or attempting to commit criminal trespass or another criminal offense other than a minor misdemeanor"

  • The injury victim was not "teasing, tormenting, or abusing the dog"

Additionally, Ohio is one of the many states that follows a “strict liability” law when it comes to dog bites. This means that a dog owner can be liable for injuries their dog inflicts even if did not think that their dog would act aggressively.A german shepherd dog biting a man's hands

Severe Dog Bite Injury Compensation in Toledo

Dog bites and animal attacks are forms of personal injury. After an attack or a dog bite, you may need the assistance of a plastic surgeon. Most dog bites occur on the face and hands, two areas of our body that scar very easily and are seen “daily” as we don’t tend to cover up these areas. When children are attacked they may suffer from mental anxiety and fear, not only from the attack experience itself but also emotional trauma from horrible scars. According to leading plastic surgery medical boards, plastic surgery from dog bites can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. We fight to get those medical bills covered by the party at fault.

Children Bite by Dogs in Toledo

Not every dog bite case is just about compensation because not every animal attack ends with just injuries. Sometimes dog attacks can be fatal, especially when young children are involved. In these types of horrific, and tragic situations, Rubin & Zyndorf need to investigate filing wrongful death claims. If you or your child has suffered severe injuries from an attack, or if a loved one has lost their life, call us today for a confidential consultation. We are here to help however we can.
