Dog Bite

Cloppert, Latanick, Sauter & Washburn are Columbus, Ohio, dog bite attorneys who can represent you if you, or your child, were bitten by a dog, resulting in injury.

Dog bites are among the most traumatic experiences of a person’s lifetime, particularly if the individual who has been bitten is a child. Injuries received from dog bites can be incredibly painful and can result in permanent physical and emotional scarring.

Successfully handling dog bite cases requires a high degree of skill, often because the victim and the dog owner know and live near each other. Because of this, our attorneys recognize that the best approach is one of concern, compassion and reconciliation—not the typical aggressiveness and bluster found in other attorneys’ television advertisements. If you or your loved one is injured by a dog owned by a neighbor, playmate or friend, our goal is for you and your loved one to receive the proper compensation for the injury and to protect those prior relationships.

We recognize that the proper treatment of a dog bite case, particularly for injuries sustained by children, can involve therapy from a medical doctor trained in child psychology so that the child can overcome a resulting fear of dogs.

If you or your child has suffered a dog bite or attack and you need an experienced Columbus, Ohio, trial lawyer, contact Cloppert, Latanick, Sauter & Washburn today for a complimentary case consultation.
