Do I Need an Atlanta Dog Bite Lawyer?
Our firm understands that physical and emotional trauma that often accompanies dog attacks is something that can follow an individual for years into the future, which is why we will do everything in our power to win you the financial compensation you require to move on with your life. You will realize how much we truly care about your right to heal from the moment you speak with a knowledgeable Atlanta injury lawyer here at Steven Jones Injury Law.
Common Dog Bite Injuries
Dog bites and other dog attacks often cause very serious injuries, and in many cases, those injuries are permanent. Some of the most common injuries associated with dog attacks are as follows:
- Soft tissue damage
- Nerve damage
- Broken bones
- Emotional trauma
Proving Your Claim
To win a dog bite injury claim, our firm will have to prove that the attack was not your fault. We will investigate the incident thoroughly to determine whether the dog has a vicious propensity (i.e. whether it has attacked anyone in the past), and we will also work to determine whether the dog was simply carelessly handled by the owner, such as by not being on a leash in a public place, thereby leading to your attack. That being said, if the dog owner can prove that the dog only attacked you because you were trespassing on private property, you were teasing the dog, or you otherwise somehow provoked the attack, you may not have a valid claim.
As long as we can prove your personal injury claim, we should recover the financial compensation that you require to move on with your life. This compensation can be for both economic damages, such as lost wages and the cost of medical bills, as well as for non-economic damages, such as emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more. Our firm is ready to fight for you. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
