Dog Attacks in Cincinnati, Ohio
The city of Cincinnati takes dog bites seriously and has specific ordinances
in place to prevent them. Dogs that are considered a threat to society
are labeled and recorded by an officer.
Dogs can be designated as:
- Nuisance dogs: These are dogs that have chased or attempted to attack another person
without provocation by the owner and while not on the owner’s property.
- Dangerous dogs: These canines have caused serious injury to a person or another dog.
Dogs can also receive this designation if the owner has violated a leash
law multiple times. The owner will receive a dangerous dog certificate
noting the designation.
- Vicious dogs: A dog is labeled vicious once they have seriously injured or killed another
person without provocation.
If you were attacked by a canine that has already been designated by the
city, this may help in your case. After a dog attack, it is important
that you are treated at a hospital and receive detailed medical records.
Contact the Ohio State Health Department within 24 hours of the bite and
take down the dog owner’s personal information. It is helpful if
you can snap photos of the offending dog and photos of your wounds. All
this information may be essential in proving your right to compensation.
