Georgia Dog Bite Attorney

Dogs are loyal friends and companions. They provide unconditional love and protection. That protection can sometimes result in tragedy. Dog bites can prove to be terrifying experiences. If you were bitten by a dog, without cause or warning, your injuries may deserve to be compensated. In Georgia, it can be very difficult to collect compensation from a dog bite. There are many factors that must be proven in a dog bite case. The attorneys at Stokes & Kopitsky, P.A. have spent many years investigating and successfully proving these kinds of claims. They can help you to assess whether you have the necessary proof of liability to get compensated for your injuries.

Georgia Dog Bite Statutes

The Georgia legislature has a history of siding with dog owners rather than with those who have been bitten when it comes to writing laws. These laws can make it hard to prove that the liability falls on the dog owner. First, you must show that the dog had vicious or aggressive tendencies. Second, you must demonstrate that the owner didn’t take precautions against these tendencies — in particular, that they allowed the animal to get too close to the victim. Unlike other forms of personal injury claim, negligence isn’t enough to carry a dog bite claim.

How Can An Attorney Help?

A qualified attorney knows exactly how to investigate these issues to prove the necessary levels of liability against the dog owner. This can involve any number of approaches, including interviewing witnesses, examining the injury, considering any past complaints against the dog and its owner, and more.

Unique Injuries

Injuries caused by canine attacks carry certain unique qualities. Dogs tend to attack vulnerable points on their victims, which often results in damage to the eyes and face and can present as severe puncture wounds, infections and even amputation of limbs. For many bite victims, the only path to recovery involves things like plastic surgery and serious rehabilitation, which can carry years of expensive and stressful treatments.

When your case is proven, the Georgia dog bite attorneys at Stokes & Kopitsky know how to get you the full compensation to cover pain and suffering and continuing medical expenses.
