Under Georgia law, the owners of dogs that bite another can be held financially accountable for the injuries they inflict. Georgia’s dog bite law is found in Ga. Code Ann., § 51-2-6 to 7. The statute states that dog owners can be liable for injuries inflicted by their pets if one of the following occurs:

The owner had knowledge of the dog’s viciousness: If the dog owner knew that the dog had vicious tendencies, this can form a basis for liability. Evidence of knowledge could include past bites or close attacks. Additionally, for liability to exist, the dog must also be at large or carelessly managed by the owner.

The dog was not on a leash or at heel: A dog owner can be liable for their dog’s actions if the dog was not on a leash, in violation of local ordinances, or the owner carelessly managed the dog at the time of the attack.

Dog bites can inflict considerable injuries, ranging from lacerations and bruises to disfigurement, amputation, infection, and much more. Children comprise half of all dog bite victims, and they can be seriously injured in an attack due to their smaller size. Our dog bite attorneys at Montlick may be able to pursue compensation for their dog bite related losses, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Reconstructive surgery costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Psychological trauma
  • Ongoing disability

If you are attacked by a dog or other animal, be sure to quickly obtain medical treatment, as delays in treatment can result in infections and other complications. Document your injuries with pictures of the wound, the dog, and witness information.
