Dog bites and other animal attacks can cause serious physical injuries. Many victims are left with severe lacerations and bruises, nerve damage and even permanent disfigurement. Many people are forced to undergo reconstructive surgery and may require plastic surgery to restore their appearances.
In addition to physical pain, a dog bite can cause emotional harm. After being attacked, some victims suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and develop lifelong phobias of dogs.
At the Garza Law Firm PLLC, we care about you. Our lawyers do everything in their power to help you overcome your injuries and rebuild your life after suffering an animal attack. From our office in Knoxville, we represent injury victims throughout eastern Tennessee.
You Deserve Compensation After A Dog Attack
After being attacked by a dog, many people are unsure of their rights. Is the dog's owner liable, Or will you be stuck paying for your own medical treatment?
In Tennessee, dog owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by their pets. If a dog is not under "reasonable control" or is "running at large" and attacks an individual who is in a public place or is lawfully on the dog owner's property, the owner can be held responsible.
At the Garza Law Firm PLLC, our lawyers will investigate the circumstances surrounding your attack. Was the dog secured by a rope or leash? Was the yard fenced in? Has the dog attacked before? We then build strong personal injury claims that get you the compensation you deserve.
