How a Lawyer Can Help After a Dog Bite

Georgia dog bite injury lawyer Shane Smith is passionate about helping injured victims of dog bites get the recovery they need to help repair the damage that was done. Watch this video to learn about Georgia dog bite laws and what can be done if you or someone you love has been attacked by a dog. Sadly, young children are frequently victims of dog attacks. When a child is a victim of a dog bite, damage to the face may occur, which could lead to permanent injuries and severe scaring. Also, a dog bite can be an emotional and very traumatic experience that can stay with a child for the rest of his or her life. In Georgia, there are laws in place that require a dog outside the home to be on a leash if it is not fenced. If a dog bites someone when the owner does not have the dog on a leash, the dog owner may be held liable for the victim’s damages. If you or your child has sustained severe injuries in a Georgia dog bite, you should contact a skilled injury attorney for legal advice. A knowledgeable lawyer can investigate the case to see if the dog has bitten anyone else previously, obtain the animal control hearing report and determine if you have a valid legal case.
