Personalized Services and Aggressive Representation
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 4.5 million people per year are bitten by dogs. Of those, one in five will require medical attention. Children are often susceptible to dog bite attacks, but even adults can suffering serious injuries or scarring because of a serious dog bite.
At Alex Simanovsky & Associates, LLC, we represent dog bite victims and their families in Atlanta and across Georgia who have suffered serious personal injury or scarring as a result of a dog attack. We offer personalized services and aggressive representation to obtain maximum compensation.
It doesn't matter if the dog has a history of biting or not — though that certainly can be a factor — if you or your child was attacked, you are entitled to seek monetary damages from the negligent dog owner.
Seeking Maximum Compensation Following a Dog Bite Injury
Many cities, apartment complexes, and housing or condo associations have restrictions about possessing aggressive breeds such as pit bulls, Rottweilers or German Shepherds, but it can be difficult for pet owners to determine the temperament of dogs of mixed ancestry. Furthermore, some pet owners may not follow city ordinances regarding fences or leash laws designed to protect others from a potentially dangerous animal.
Dog bites can cause significant or even life-altering injuries, including:
- Deep skin wounds
- Loss of fingers
- Permanent scarring or disfigurement
Most of these injuries require stitches, and some may even require plastic surgery now or in the future. A dog bite attack can also cause emotional trauma, especially in small children, who may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or lifelong fear of dogs.
