Dog bite cases can be very tricky to settle. Often the dog owner claims the injured party provoked the dog’s action. There are also very specific Statute of Limitations issues to be considered.
Ohio law prohibits a person from removing a dog that has bitten any person from the county in which the bite occurred until a quarantine period has been completed. It is possible for a dog owner, a dog “Harborer” (person who controls where the dog lives) and/or a “Keeper” (person who maintains control over the dog) to be liable for the dog bite. An experienced lawyer is needed to determine how to proceed with a dog bite case.
