Our Toledo, Ohio dog bite attorneys wrote The Ohio Dog Bite Book, which outlines what you should do in the event of an Ohio dog bite. If you or someone you know has suffered from a dog bite, it is important know the proper steps to take. Seek medical treatment immediately, and take photos of the injury. If an insurance company contacts you, do not make any statements or sign any medical authorizations before consulting an attorney.
But one of the most important tips in The Ohio Dog Bite Book is to notify the authorities, including your area Dog Warden.
Toledo, Ohio dog bite attorney Dale Emch defends Lucas County Dog Warden Tom Skeldon in his recent Toledo Blade op-ed piece, “Skeldon does his duty, tells it like it is.”
As Dale’s column points out, Tom Skeldon works to prevent dog bites and dog attacks by strongly enforcing Toledo’s pit bull laws. Pit bulls, the only breed classified as vicious in the State of Ohio, can cause serious personal injury to victims. The difference in a pit bull bite is the strength of the dog’s locking jaws and the power that comes from their back legs when pits shake their victims. Mr. Skeldon, as well as our Toledo, Ohio dog bite attorneys, recognize this, which is why we continue to support the Lucas County Dog Warden, and his stance on pit bulls.
