When Pit Bull Attacks, You Need Experienced Guidance

Pit bull attacks can be devastating for victims, often leading to scarring, disfigurement, amputation, brain injuries, puncture wounds, lacerations and, in some cases, death. In fact, while children are especially vulnerable to attack, pit bulls are strong enough to injure even the largest of adults.

Given the dangers posed by this potentially violent breed of dog, many homeowners insurance companies now refuse to provide coverage for pit bulls, not to mention that some local areas of Georgia have passed bans on owning pit bulls altogether.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury because of a pit bull bite or attack, you deserve to recover compensation for all losses and injuries, including the treatment costs for plastic surgery or other necessary medical care.

Potentially Responsible Parties

Unfortunately, most pit bulls that attack do so because their owners do not properly train them and because their owners don't keep the dogs secure and/or warn visitors of the risks. Fortunately, however, a dog's owner may be liable under Georgia for dog attack injuries if:

  • The dog was dangerous and the owner knew, or should have known, that the dog was dangerous
  • The dog attack occurred when the owner allowed the dog to run free and unleashed, in violation of a city, county or government ordinance

It is also important to mention that, in some limited cases, others such as landlords may also be liable. However, determining liability can be complex, which is why it is best to contact the Law Office of Brian C. McCarthy as soon as possible.
