Every year more than 4.5 million people in the United States are bitten by a dog. Approximately one out of six bites requires medical attention by a physician.
Under Indiana law, the dog owner is responsible when their canine injures someone. Many pet owners believe that they are allowed "one bite" before they are liable for injuries their pet causes. While a first bite may keep the dog from being euthanized, this is not true in terms of liability to the injured party.
Attorney Eric Allan Koch is experienced in dog bite litigation. With over 32 years of experience, he is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Ratings by his clients have earned him the Martindale-Hubbell Client Distinction Award for responsiveness, quality of service, communications ability, and overall value and the Martindale-Hubbell Client Champion Gold Award.
