Dog Bites & Animal Attacks

Cumming Personal Injury Attorney

When an animal causes you harm in any way in Georgia State, the law can consider it an animal attack. While this can constitute falling injuries caused by a large hound jumping into you, perhaps even out of happy excitement, it most commonly refers to dog bites. Whether or not the dog's owner is found criminally negligent or malicious and allowed the dog attack to happen, you can file an injury lawsuit against them.

Damages you may be able to recover in your dog bite lawsuit include:

  • Initial medical treatment
  • Ongoing care (nerve damage cases)
  • Wages missed as you recover
  • Punitive damages (criminal cases)

A dog attack is also a traumatic experience for the victim. In most cases, especially where the victim is a young child or an elder, emotional harm can occur, scarring the person for the rest of their lives and instilling a fear of dogs within them. If you are experiencing such understandable mental trauma after being bitten by a dog, you may also be able to sue for nominal damages for further compensation.

Sticking Up for Our Clients' Rights

Georgia State legislation grants a noticeable amount of leniency to dog owners. In some cases, the owner has successfully argued that liability did not fall on them simply because they had a leash on the animal at the time of the attack, and that they took reasonable steps to prevent the big from occurring. At The Manton Law Firm, LLC, our Cumming personal injury attorney, Mr. Manton, does his best to ensure his clients' and their rights are well-respected. It is inexcusable to permit owners of dangerous animals to escape responsibility after their dog has caused someone considerable harm.

Arguments we could use to bolster your claim in court include:

  • Dog was outwardly aggressive
  • Owner showed no control over animal
  • No provocation or harm came to the animal before the attack
  • Lack of clear warning signs of dog on premises

If you want to be able to recover safe and sound after being bitten by a dog, you need to take matters into your own hands and team up with our personal injury lawyer in Cumming, Georgia. Otherwise the state will do nothing to compensate you, even if the owner is found to be criminally negligent and subsequently caused the attack. When we are on your side, you will know that you have someone in your corner who is fighting for you through thick and thin.
