As part of its expanded service, Cambre & Associates offers victims no-obligation consultations, where the team will assess the circumstances surrounding their dog bite accident and determine the most viable course of action for getting compensation for their injury. The team also offers no-win, no-fee legal representation that enables victims to still cover the expenses of medical treatment even if compensation is not awarded for their case.
“At Cambre & Associates, we understand that the physical and emotional trauma of being attacked by a dog can feel overwhelming, but our experienced dog bite attorneys will fight to protect your rights and seek the best possible resolution to your dog bite claim,” a representative for the firm said.
With more than 4.5 million individuals bitten by dogs every year in the US, and over 800,000 of these attacks being serious enough for the injured person to seek medical attention, many victims are still unaware of requisite law. While most states adhere to the “one bite” rule, where the pet owner is legally responsible if they knew that their dog had a tendency to cause injury, under Georgia law, a dog can also be considered “vicious,” meaning the owner can be held liable if they were careless or the attack was not provoked. However, if the dog has never bitten before, their liability would be more difficult to prove.
Since Georgia law tends to favor dog owners more than victims, putting a high burden of proof on the individual who sustained the injuries, the team at Cambre & Associates advises victims of dog bites to get in touch with an experienced personal injury lawyer to increase the likelihood of getting optimal compensation for their injuries and associated medical costs. Victims also need expert legal assistance to avoid beingly wrongly accused of intentionally or unintentionally provoking a dog into biting and file their claim successfully, the team notes.
“Photos of your injuries, medical records from doctors that treated your dog bite, and witness statements can all be used to demonstrate the extent of your injuries and exactly what transpired when the bite occurred. So, you should gather as much evidence after the attack as possible, which will strengthen your case if it goes to trial,” Cambre & Associates says.
