Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
Animal attacks can cause permanent physical damage, as well as intense psychological suffering. Most animal attacks involve dogs; though they may be domesticated, they can become violent without warning. Other seemingly innocuous animals, like cats, snakes, and birds can also attack suddenly. Under Georgia state law, the owners of violent, domesticated animals can be held liable for the injuries their animals cause. Also, under premises liability laws, the owner of a property can be held responsible for any injuries caused by animals on their property. In Atlanta-area dog bite cases, an attorney from Zevin & Rosenbloum can help victims obtain compensation for their injuries.
Georgia has abolished the “one free bite” rule. This means that the attorneys athe the Atlanta office of Zevin & Rosenbloum can proceed with a dog or animal bite case without having to prove that the animal has bitten before. Now, you must only prove that the animal has a “vicious propensity.” Because animal bite cases are difficult to prove, you must hire a lawyer immediately.
