Dogs have earned a beloved reputation as man’s best friend, but canines and other common household pets also bite many people each year. Dog bites can be very painful and, in some cases, they can inflict long-lasting emotional impacts on victims, particularly on young children, who may forever be afraid of dogs.
If you or someone you know has suffered a dog bite injury or been the victim of an animal attack, a lawyer in Atlanta, Georgia from Fried Rogers Goldberg LLC, will protect your rights and help you obtain compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
If you were bitten by a dog or attacked by a wild animal while you were on land owned or controlled by another party, you may be able to obtain compensation from the property owner for failing to take the steps necessary to prevent the injury or properly warn you of the possibility of an animal attack.
Our experienced premises liability attorneys specialize in handling such cases and can evaluate your claim to determine if you may be able to hold the property owner financially liable for your injuries.
Most Dangerous Breeds
While just about any breed of dog can be dangerous and inflict a painful bite wound, certain breeds have shown a greater propensity for attacking people. Although care should be taken around all dogs, the breeds of dogs considered to be more dangerous include:
- Pit Bulls
- Doberman Pinchers
- German Shepherds
The medical expense associated with dog bite injuries and animal attacks can quickly skyrocket out of control, with costly hospital stays, surgeries, physical rehabilitation, and more. The emotional impacts of a dog bite or animal attack injury can be even more substantial. Victims often become afraid to go for walks or ride their bikes for fear of another attack. Some victims, particularly young people, are forever skittish around dogs and other animals.

With a proven record of success in these types of personal injury cases, our attorneys are sensitive to the emotional needs of our clients and can protect your rights while helping you obtain compensation for all injuries.
