Georgia Dog Bite Laws

Bitten by a dog?

Dog bites can be both frightening and physically painful experiences. Dog owners are legally liable for any injuries or damages caused by their pets and are responsible for controlling their animals under all circumstances. Even if you were on the owner’s own property by their invitation, an animal attack resulting in injury or death will always be the owner’s responsibility. If you or a loved one has suffered an animal attack or dog bite you should speak to an Atlanta personal injury lawyer at the Law Office of Neil Flit.

The damage and costs associated with a dog attack and mauling can be extensive. Under Georgia dog bite laws the owner or handler of any dog involved in such an attack can be held liable to pay for all medical care, loss wages and any pain and suffering resulting from such an attack. Our firm is dedicated to helping those who have suffered injury or losses resulting from dog bites or attacks to get the full financial compensation they deserve.

In addition to the trauma associated with a dog attack, many such injuries are costly to treat and can require ongoing and expensive surgery. Serious injuries can prevent the victim from being able to work or can cause temporary or even permanent disability. When a child is the victim such an attack can even result in a fatality. In such cases it can be appropriate to file a wrongful death suit against the responsible party. Dog bite injuries can result in serious scarring and disfigurement and even with proper medical attention the physical damage may never be entirely repaired. If you or a loved one has suffered a dog bite that requires medical attention you have the right to be compensated for your medical expenses and any other associated damages. We can help you seek the settlement you need to recover from such injuries.
