Examples of vicious behavior that an owner should have managed include:

  • growling;
  • baring its fangs;
  • snapping; or
  • walking menacingly toward a person while barking.

These types of behavior could be considered vicious enough that an owner should have known there was the potential for the dog to eventually bite someone.

Importance of Seeking Legal Advice When Injured by a Dog

Although bites are the most common injuries when it comes to an encounter with a dog, a person could sustain damage from being clawed.

If there was serious physical harm—such as it caused a significant amount of skin to tear or it led to the person developing a life-threatening infection—it would be critical to seek help from an attorney as soon as possible to begin an injury claim.

Despite the many challenges that can be faced in this type of case, it doesn’t necessarily mean an Atlanta victim has no legal options. Call Jason R. Schultz at 404-474-0804 to set up a consultation about your claim.
