Animal Attacks

Animal owners and keepers have a legal responsibility to protect others from harm caused by their animals. Many serious injuries inflicted during an animal attack go uncompensated because the victim doesn’t know about laws designed to protect them.

At Plymale & Dingus, we have experience representing animal attack victims and we understand Ohio law in regards to animal attacks. In Ohio, a claim can be made using any one of three legal grounds. There are also special laws for pit bull owners and keepers. Pit bulls are required to be kept in secure, locked pens. When out of the pen, they must be muzzled or restrained by chains no longer than 6 feet. Pit bull owners are required to carry a minimum of $100,000 in liability insurance.

Animal attacks often inflict serious injury and permanent scarring. If you or a loved one has been the victim of an animal attack, contact the experienced injury attorneys at Plymale & Dingus today. The initial consultation is free and our fee is contingent on the results obtained in your case. Our firm does not receive payment unless you receive monetary compensation.
