What compensation can I collect for a dog bite?

A dog bite case is a personal injury claim that seeks to recover money for reasonable and necessary medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. Often young children and young women are most damaged by the physical scarring and the psychological aftermaths of being attacked by an uncontrollable animal.  Contact us today for dog bite injury claims.

In Georgia, dog owners are subject to a number of laws and regulations regarding the keeping and care of their pets. Here are a few examples:

  • Leash laws: In many areas of Georgia, dogs must be kept on a leash or within a secure enclosure at all times when in public.

  • Vaccinations: Georgia law requires that all dogs be vaccinated against rabies, and owners must keep records of their pets’ vaccinations.

  • Registration: In some counties or cities in Georgia, dogs must be registered with the local government and wear identification tags.

  • Neglect and abuse: Georgia law prohibits the neglect and abuse of dogs, and owners can face criminal charges for mistreating their pets.

  • Dangerous dogs: Georgia law defines certain breeds or types of dogs as “dangerous,” and owners of these dogs may face additional restrictions or requirements.

It’s important to note that specific dog keeping laws may vary depending on the county or city in which you live. It’s a good idea to research the laws in your area and consult with a local animal law attorney if you have any questions or concerns.
