Fighting for Victims and their Families in Atlanta, Alpharetta, Cumming and all of Georgia
An animal attack can result in a very painful and mentally stressful personal injury, requiring medical attention and time off from work. The emotional issues that can arise from an attack may change how a person goes about their daily activities. Children are frequently the victims of these attacks and their injuries can include lacerations, puncture wounds, abrasions and fractures. In severe cases, amputation may be the final result of an animal attack.
In the case of attacks by dogs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 4.7 million individuals per year are bitten by dogs. 400,000 of those injured in the attacks required emergency medical attention. Some of these injuries are catastrophic, demanding long-term medical care and a change in the lifestyle of the victim. If you or a loved one have suffered injury from an animal attack, it is vital to seek the help of a competent Georgia dog bite personal injury law firm to obtain fair compensation for your injuries.
Owners of animals can be held legally liable for their harmful conduct. Many victims do not understand that they can file a personal injury lawsuit against the owner of the animal. The physical and mental suffering that an individual undergoes should, however, be properly compensated. Additionally, the owner of an animal needs to be held responsible so that no future attacks occur to other innocent victims.
