If you have suffered a dog mauling or been injured in an animal attack in the Toledo area, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests. Ohio enforces strict liability on dog owners if their animal bites or mauls someone, with limited exceptions. You want an attorney who understands the law and the process, one who has successfully helped others get full and fair compensation for personal injuries.
I bring more than 30 years of personal injury experience to individuals throughout state of Ohio who have been injured by a dog bite or animal attack. Before focusing my practice exclusively on the rights of personal injury victims, I spent 10 years defending insurance companies in dog mauling and other animal attack lawsuits. I understand the tactics they use to try to minimize or deny your claims and can take the steps necessary to anticipate and negate their strategies. In my years of practice, I have handled hundreds of personal injury claims involving millions of dollars in losses.

Toledo Dog Bite Attorney
In Ohio, dog owners are strictly liable if their animals bite another person, except in cases of trespassing, the commission of a crime, or when the dog has been teased or tormented on its own property. Some canines, such as pit bulls, are considered inherently vicious and must be on a leash and covered by insurance if walked in public.
At the office of Martin E. Goff, Attorney at Law, I handle all types of injury claims resulting from dog bites or animal attacks, from puncture wounds to permanent scarring, from rabies infections to emotional trauma. I also handle wrongful death claims resulting from dog bites or animal attacks.
When you hire me to protect your rights after a dog bite or animal attack, I will move quickly to gather and preserve all evidence, interviewing witnesses and taking pictures of the scene of the incident, as well as your injuries. I will work with you to ensure that a police report is filed and that animal control is called, if necessary, to determine whether the dog has rabies.
Because of my experience handling insurance defense, I know how to work effectively with adjusters to get a settlement that fully compensates you for your injuries, including lost wages or income, medical expenses, and physical pain and suffering.
