Macon Dog Bite Attorneys
According to theover 800,000-dog bite injuries require medical attention each year. Half of the victims of dog attacks are children. In addition to the pain and suffering faced by dog attack victims, there is also a risk of infection and rabies that can be fatal if not quickly treated.
The dog owner is responsible for dog bite injuries
In Georgia, dog owners must restrain their dogs, and they are accountable for their pets’ aggressive actions. As long as you are legally allowed to be on the public or private property where the attack occurs, the dog owner may also be responsible for dog bites. This may be true regardless of whether or not the dog was on a leash. In many instances, the owner’s insurance can cover your medical bills, loss of income, and even future lost earning potential for more serious injuries.
