So Who Is Legally Responsible Following A Dog Attack?

While dog owner/homeowner negligence is the cause of most dog bites, Georgia dog bite laws state that an owner will only be responsible if one of two things occur:

  • The dog was dangerous or vicious and the owner knew, or should have known, that the dog was dangerous and at high risk of attack
  • The dog's owner or handler was careless and the dog attacked while running free in public in violation of laws requiring dogs to be leashed or restrained

Whether you were attacked by a dog that had a history of violence or you were hurt following a leash law violation, the Law Office of Brian C. McCarthy can help you obtain the compensation you deserve. He will negotiate with the insurance company or litigate your case at trial.

No matter if you were attacked by a pit bull, a Rottweiler, a Doberman pinscher or any other breed, lawyer Brian C. McCarthy can assist you. He truly believes negligent dog owners need to be held accountable when their vicious dogs attack.
