Author : Cameron Rochelle   Top Author

Any injury sustained from an animal bite is a serious issue. It is vital that you get proper medical help if you have been bitten by an animal or another human.

If you have been bitten by a dog in Georgia or a neighboring state, you can easily find a lawyer who has experience in this area of expertise.

Any dog bite should be considered a serious medical situation because of the microbes that live in a dog’s saliva. It may not be immediately obvious if a dog is a carrier of rabies. A pasteurella infection is a more common outcome of a dog bite. These situations can become severe without proper medical treatment. Good treatment as well as medications such as Bactrim can be a considerable expense for your family. You deserve help paying these expenses, especially if the dog was wild or out of control. Insurance companies pay over a billion dollars just in dog bite claims each year, so this is a common issue that is frequently compensated. If you have been bitten, you deserve your share of that money. An experienced Atlanta dog bite attorney will help you get the compensation that you deserve.

There are a lot of details that can go into a civil case over a dog bite. It takes an experienced Atlanta dog bite attorney to sort through the situation to maximize your claim. Obviously, if you were trespassing on someone’s property and antagonized a dog, you cannot expect a lot of help. On the other hand, if your child was bitten by a dog that was known to be dangerous and is now suffering from post traumatic stress, you are entitled to a significant legal compensation. Most cases fall in between these two ends of the spectrum, but your attorney will help you know what to expect.
Finding a good Atlanta dog bite attorney is easier than you might think. Check online for lawyers in your area that are experienced in these types of cases. Oftentimes, you can get a free initial consultation that will help you understand your situation.

Remember that you always have options when it comes to lawyers, so do not settle for one that you are not comfortable with.

Obviously, experience plays a big role when it comes to an Atlanta dog bite attorney. You also want a lawyer who will not charge fees if the case goes sour and you do not receive fair compensation. An attorney who does not charge unless the case is successful has a lot of confidence in his or her abilities. Since you will not be paying fees unless you get monetary compensation, you can afford a better lawyer for your case.

Dog bites are a serious medical issue that should not be ignored. Not having money is never a reason for avoiding medical care because you may be due compensation for your injury.
