About Dog Bite Cases

 

MARIETTA DOG BITE ATTORNEY

 

An attack by a dog can be a very frightening experience and usually results in physical injury and long-lasting psychological effects. Each state, including Georgia, has its own laws and local ordinances regarding proper care and handling of canines. Dog owner negligence or recklessness in violation of those ordinances can lead to dog attacks on humans. Dog bites can be serious injuries and are sometimes severe enough to cause death. Immediate medical treatment is necessary for dog bite injuries and it can require hospitalization, rabies shots, and long-term rehabilitation.

 

A victim of dog bites may miss work thus causing a financial hardship due to loss of income. Medical treatment can be expensive. If a person has suffered from dog bites, it is important to contact a Marietta personal injury attorney who understands how dog attacks can affect a person physically and emotionally. Our personal injury attorneys at Blevins & Hong, P.C. help victims of dog bites seek the monetary compensation they deserve for their injuries.

 

An owner whose dog is provoked and attacks may not qualify for owner negligence. An unprovoked attack is a different matter and it is best to consult with an attorney who is knowledgeable in the laws regarding managing dogs. The two most common violations of dog ordinances are:

 

  • Failing to follow leash laws
  • Knowing that a dog has the temperament for or a propensity to bite and doing nothing to prevent it from biting

 

Unfortunately, children comprise the largest number of dog bite victims and a child may be scarred both physically and mentally for life. The individual responsible for the dog bite injuries may be liable to the injured victims for damages. The victim may file a lawsuit and recover loss of wages, medical costs, pain and suffering and loss of companionship. In the case of fatal dog bites, the surviving parents, children, spouse or sibling may sue for wrongful death.
