Who Is Liable for Animal Injury Under Georgia Law?

Anyone who keeps a vicious or dangerous animal of any kind may be liable if the animal attacks someone. Suppose the owner causes injury by careless management or allowing the animal to go at liberty, and the victim does not provoke the injury. In that case, the owner may be liable for damages to the person injured. It is sufficient to show that the animal was required to be at heel or on a leash by an ordinance of a city, county, or consolidated government and that the animal was not at heel or on a leash.

What if I Am Bitten in Paulding?

Follow these steps the best you can–they are vital for your health, safety, and legal rights:

Seek Information

Identify the dog that caused the injury, if at all possible. It may be necessary to discover where it lives and discover the owner's name before seeking medical attention. If anyone witnessed the animal injury, ask for names and contact information. Any legal assistance you may seek later may ask for these details. Obtaining these details will help you notify authorities about the injury to investigate. This will also make the process of filing a personal injury claim easier.

File a Report

Most cities require every animal bite to be documented, so take the time to file a complaint with Paulding Animal Control.  Consider calling the non-emergency number for local police, as well. Their department may then send an officer to your location to write a report–applicable if you go to court. It helps prove that the dog's owner is liable for your bite injury.

Seek Medical Attention

You might not think the injury needs attention. Perhaps it does not look too bad, or you have a high pain tolerance. Visit the emergency room anyway. Dogs have plentiful bacteria in their mouths, which commonly develops in these situations. Remember, you might not experience symptoms for several hours, and seeking medical help right away can prevent the injury from worsening. Any medical records created during your treatment can link your injuries to the bite, should you seek legal help later.
