Dog bites can be unpredictable, devastating, and very frustrating. Too often people harbor dangerous dogs. The attorneys at Summe & Summe, PSC are experienced at evaluating these types of cases and holding the dog owners or handlers responsible.
Although anyone can be bitten by a dog, children and the elderly are most susceptible to suffering severe injuries. Because of their small size, children most often suffer serious injuries to the face, throat and neck area. The elderly, who are more frail than younger adults, are more likely to suffer from broken hips, wrists, arms and other broken bones by being knocked over by an attacking dog. In Kentucky and Ohio, a dog owner is strictly liable for their dog who bites someone.
