Owning a dog can be a rewarding experience. 

Dogs are known to decrease stress levels, increase immunity, provide a sense of emotional well-being, along with many more benefits.  But the best thing a dog offers is unconditional love. For many families, their dog is a loved member of the family.

But, what happens when another person's dog bites you?  

If you were bitten by a dog in Georgia or South Carolina due to negligence, you may not realize that you have the right to compensation for your injuries, medical costs, and damages.   The Brown Firm has experienced attorneys to help you.

Dog bite Attorneys

Dog bites are not uncommon.  Over 4.7 million Americans are bitten every year, with half of them being children between ages 5-9. 

About 20% of all dog bites need medical attention. 

Here are a few ways to prevent a dog bite: 

  1. Always ask for permission before petting an unknown dog
  2. Don't panic or run from a dog
  3. Don't mess with a dog that is eating or caring for puppies
  4. Don't allow small children to play unsupervised with a dog
  5. Avoid direct eye contact with a dog you don't know

Although it is important to try to prevent dog bites, sometimes a dog will feel threatened even though the person did not intentionally mean to.  You should know your rights as a dog bite victim.

Frequently Asked Questions

 How much does a dog bite injury lawyer cost?

Hiring a Dog Bite Injury Attorney will not cost you any upfront legal fees, because they work on what is called a Contingency Fee Basis, and also provide a Free Consultation.

A Contingency Fee Basis means that you do not pay any legal fees upfront, and your attorneys only collect a fee in the form of a small percentage of your final settlement.

Working on a Contingency Fee Basis is very beneficial to Dog Bite Injury Victims because they can rest assured knowing that their attorney will do everything in their power to maximize their settlement for them.

 How Long Will it Take to Get my Settlement?

Dog Bite Injuries can vary a great deal when it comes to the length of time it will take to settle. 

First, it depends on how soon after your accident you speak to an attorney and how long it takes to file your claim.

Second, the seriousness of the accident and the extent of the injuries can cause the length of time to vary. Also, if you would need to go to court, it will extend the length of time before you would receive a settlement. 

If I Hire a Dog Bite Attorney, Will I Have to Go to Trial?

Usually, you will not need to go to trial during your Dog Bite Injury Lawsuit. Most of the time, a settlement will be reached between your attorney and the at-fault party's insurance company. However, your attorney will discuss with you what the best option is for you to receive the largest settlement possible, and occasionally that can mean going to trial.
