Carrollton Dog Bite Lawyers

Carrollton and Carroll County are both patrolled by Carroll County Animal Control.  Both the city and the county have ordinances pertaining to leashes on dogs.  These ordinances are commonly referred to as “leash laws.”

Even with these laws, millions of people are bitten by dogs each year.  According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, over 4.5 million people were bitten by a dog in 2012.  Over half of those people were children. With that said, if you or a loved one have been bitten by a dog, it is important you seek assistance from a Carrollton dog bite lawyer to hold the negligent owner responsible and seek financial recovery. Through the assistance of an accident attorney, you can begin the recovery process.

What to Do After a Dog Bite or Dog Attack

You are not alone if you or a loved suffered a dog bite.  In America, a dog bite happens every 75 seconds and 1,000 people per day require medical treatment from a dog bite.  If a dog bite injury occurs, the Carrollton Dog Bite Lawyers of The Parian Law Firm, LLC recommend:

  • Get medical treatment as soon as possible.
  • Find out the dog’s identity, the identity of its owner and where the owner lives. It is important for the owner to be located, so that you can file an injury claim against his or her insurance policy
  • Take photos of your bite injuries and of any torn or bloody clothing that you wore during the attack. If possible, take photos of the dog and of where the attack occurred, as well as getting the names and contact information of anyone who could act as a witness in the case.
  • Do not, under any circumstances, give a statement to the insurance company. It may come back to bite you later if you do.
  • Do not sign any documents or paperwork. It is the intention of insurance companies to try to settle cases quickly for the lowest amount possible. They often take advantage of the time when individuals may still be hurting and under stress from their injuries by offering a fast and easy settlement which is far less than the amount that is deserved.
  • Contact an experienced personal injury attorney who understands the Georgia dog bite liability laws and knows how to negotiate with insurance companies to obtain the best settlement possible for you.
