Dog Bite Attorney
If you are the victim of a dog bite, contact Marietta dog bite attorney Steven M. Barnett for legal representation and collect the compensation you deserve.
These cases are very fact specific and there are many factors under Georgia law that will influence the outcome of each case. Essentially, it must be proven that 1) the dog was considered vicious, dangerous, or aggressive, and that the owner knew this; 2) The dog’s owner did not act properly by having the dog leashed, fenced, or isolated, or the owner let the dog off leash in violation of state or local laws; and 3) The animal was not provoked by the victim in any way.
Dogs bite millions of Americans each year according to the Center for Disease Control; a good portion of these require medical help, and half involve children. Dog bites can result severe physical and emotional damage and in many cases, these dog attacks could have been prevented. In general, dogs cannot attack unless someone was negligent in failing to properly secure the dog.
The effect of a dog attack on your life can be dramatic as you struggle with the stress of the injury, as well as the emotional pain. Although the dog might not have known any better, the dog’s owner certainly should have. You both need and deserve justice for what happened to you or your child. I have personally handled many cases involving serious dog bite injuries and have a solid knowledge of Georgia law, which is essential when seeking fair compensation.
