What Does an Augusta Dog Bite Injury Lawyer Do?

Hiring a lawyer to represent you during a dog bite injury case in Georgia can ensure fair results. An insurance company may try to take advantage of you if you are unrepresented, but an attorney will make sure this doesn’t happen.

An attorney will investigate your case, gather evidence, and use aggressive tactics to argue for the compensation you deserve for serious dog bite injuries. You won’t have to settle for less than you need to move forward. Having a lawyer take over your case can allow you the peace of mind to focus on recuperating from your injuries. You will know that your case is receiving the attention it deserves.

Who Is Responsible for a Dog Bite Injury in Georgia?

If a dog attacks you in Georgia, its owner may be responsible for paying for your related expenses through his or her homeowners’ insurance. According to Georgia Code Section 51-2-7, a pet owner can be legally responsible for damages if:

  • The dog was considered a vicious or dangerous animal at the time. For example, the animal had previously attacked another person or domestic animal, or an animal control officer classified the dog as dangerous.
  • The attack or dog bite injury occurred because of the carelessness of the dog’s owner or controller. The pet owner must be guilty of a careless action or failure to act, such as allowing the animal to run at large.
  • You did not contribute to the attack by trespassing on private property or provoking the dog to bite. If you were taunting or harassing the dog at the time of the bite, you may not have grounds to hold the pet owner legally responsible.

If your lawyer can prove these three things as more likely to be true than not true, the dog owner will have to pay for your losses through his or her homeowners insurance coverage. A person physically in charge of controlling the dog at the time of the attack could also be liable, even if he or she was not the pet’s owner.

How to Collect Evidence for a Dog Bite Case

Your attorney will need to prove your dog bite injury case using a preponderance of the evidence. This is enough clear and convincing evidence to show that the defendant was more than 50 percent responsible for your injuries. You can help your attorney prove your case by gathering evidence while still at the scene:

  • Photographs
  • Videos or surveillance footage
  • Information about the pet and its owner
  • A description of the accident
  • Eyewitness contact information
  • Police report
  • Medical records

If you cannot collect evidence while at the scene, don’t worry. Focus on getting emergency medical care for your serious dog bite injuries and hire an Augusta dog bite injury attorney to preserve and gather evidence for you.
