Mesothelioma, Lung cancer, Asbestosis Questions?


Ask for free information about the responsibility of an animal owner for injuries caused by that animal.

If you or a family member have been seriously injured by a dog or any other animal, you are entitled to money from the owner to pay for medical bills, pain, and disfigurement.


On 2/21/12 Governor Kasich of Ohio signed a bill that allows dogs showing behavioral problems to be placed in one of three categories:

NUISANCE: One that has chased or attempted to bite a person while off its premises.

DANGEROUS: One that has caused injury to a person, or killed another dog, without provocation.

VICIOUS:  One that has killed or seriously injured a person without provocation.

Under the old Law (ยง 955.11 of the Ohio Revised Code) a dog that "belonged to a breed that is commonly known as a pit bull" was automatically classified as a vicious dog.

The New Law classifies dogs according to their individual behavior rather than by breed.;  (I know that the dog above is not a Pitbull-the point is-it is the dog, not the breed that needs to be properly cared for! )

The fact that the law has changed does not alter the rights of some one who is attacked by a dog.  The owner of the dog is responsible for injuries caused by that dog.
