Dogs can be great creatures and wonderful companions, however, some dogs can attack without warning – causing devastating injuries. At Joshi & Patel, we are experienced in handling dog-bite cases. We have litigated dog-bite cases with injuries ranging from the victim receiving puncture wounds with minor scars to a body part being torn off resulting from a dog attack. Regardless of the injury, in nearly every case the attack was described as painful and terrifying.
Thousands of Georgians are bitten by dogs every year and unfortunately, children are most often the victims of dog attacks. Dog bite wounds do not always heal well and child victims are often left with permanent emotional and physical scars. These scars not only serve as daily reminders of the attack, but can be points of ridicule from other children. It is our opinion that with dog bite cases involving children it is even more important to recover the full value of the claim from the insurance company.
Regardless of where the incident took place, many dog bite incidents may be covered by home-owners insurance. Our FREE evaluation includes determining all available insurance coverage for a particular incident and if and what local laws have been violated.
