Dog Owners Must Keep You Safe

Whether walking along your street or in a park, a dog owner has the responsibility to maintain control over their pet. If the dog bites someone, even if the dog is on a leash, the owner could be found responsible. The state does not require that the owner have some type of warning or expectation that the dog would be to be held responsible.

That means that, even if the dog has never hurt anyone else before, the dog owner is responsible for the losses that the pet creates. There are limitations to this. The victim cannot provoke the dog into a bite or antagonize the dog in any way. Moreover, the victim must have been legally allowed to be at the location of the incident. A dog owner may not be responsible, for example, if a criminal breaks into a home and is attacked by a dog.

Most of the time, the owner is responsible. Our dog bite attorney in Augusta will work with you to prove that you are owed damages.

Common Damages in a Dog Bite Case

Dog bites vary in severity and overall complications. In some situations, a person may suffer serious losses from this type of bite, including:

  • Nerve damage
  • Puncture wounds
  • Infection-related complications
  • Disfigurement
  • Amputation
  • Muscle and tissue damage

Dog bites on children are even more dangerous and may be life-threatening. Yet, children are some of the most vulnerable to dog bites due to their small size. Both adults and children may also suffer emotional trauma brought on by such intense events.
