Dog Bite Injury Lawyer in Atlanta, GA
Atlanta laws allow people who have been injured by a pet to seek compensation regardless of the situation. These laws mean that it doesn't matter if the animal was provoked, you were trespassing in its property or any other situation, if a dog or pet attacks, the owner can be held responsible. In Atlanta a dog is only allowed to bite a person once. After the first reported injury, the dog has to be listed as a vicious dog and must be properly restrained around people. If the dog bites again, not only must it be put down, but the owner may be in even more trouble because he/she knew their pet was dangerous and still let it out. An Atlanta personal injury attorney can look into whether the dog that bite you was registered as vicious or not as well as help you with every step of your case.
Dog bites that happen in the home are just as liable for compensation as attacks that happen in the street or park. If you enter a friend or neighbor's house and are bitten or attacked by their pet, you have the right to be compensated. Animal bites are generally covered under people's homeowner's insurance so make sure they file a claim in the event that you are attacked in a pet owner's home. Likewise, if you enter property with a guard dog that bites or attacks you, the dog owner may be held responsible for your injuries even if you were no invited onto the property. Guard dogs that attack visitors or trespassers are not a valid form of defense. If you have been hurt by a guard dog, call the Atlanta personal injury lawyers at The Berry Law Group to find out more about your rights.
