Getting attacked by a dog is a scary and traumatic experience. It also has the potential to cause catastrophic personal injury. If you were hurt by someone else’s dog in Georgia, you may be wondering whether you should sue the owner. After all, the bite was inflicted through no fault of your own, and now you are left with expensive medical bills.
The law in Georgia tends to work in the dog owner’s favor, but that does not mean you shouldn’t pursue your options. Attorney Laurie Robbins may be able to pursue full and fair compensation on your behalf. Learn more about your options in a complimentary consultation.
A dog bite can have serious health consequences, including:
- Staph infection
- Other life-threatening infections
Physical trauma is another possible outcome. Dog bites can cause extensive scarring, sometimes on a person’s face or hands. A dog attack victim could lose a finger or require amputation because of the initial attack or a resulting infection.
Oftentimes injury victims express hesitation about filing a lawsuit. They worry the process will be overly complicated, contentious, and expensive. That’s certainly not always the way these situations go. Many dog bite injury cases settle out of court, in a deal reached between the parties. You can rely on Ms. Robbins to handle your case with the utmost efficiency, compassion, and diligence. Even if the dog’s owner was a friend or relative, you still deserve compensation so that you can deal with the very real ramifications, such as:
- Medical bills
- Loss of wages
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
Don’t attempt to answer this question of whether you should pursue a claim, on your own. Ms. Robbins offers a free, no-obligation consultation so you can explore all of your options before making a decision.
