To file a successful Georgia personal injury claim after a dog attack in Georgia, your Turin dog bite attorney will have to prove dog bite liability, such as:
- the animal was aggressive or dangerous and the dog's owner was aware of the animal's propensity for danger;
- the dog's owner did not securely confine the dangerous animal or the owner allowed the dog to wander around freely in violation of Georgia's laws; and
- you, the victim, did not provoke the dangerous dog to attack.
Although a dog attack in Georgia might last only seconds or minutes, it can lead to serious injuries such as disfigurement, severe lacerations and even death. As the victim or parent of a dog attack victim, you may be able to seek compensation for current and future medical expenses, pain and suffering and time missed from work.
In determining whether or not you should pursue a personal injury claim, your Turin attorney will go over the details of your case and examine all the evidence, including medical reports, torn clothing and witness statements to identify dog bite liability.
Your Turin dog bite attorney can handle negotiations with the dog owner's insurance company to help you recover an appropriate settlement or, if necessary, take your case to court as a formal lawsuit.
