Talk to a Personal Injury Attorney
If you have been attacked or bitten by a dog, we encourage you to speak with a Knoxville dog bite lawyer about seeking compensation for your injuries. Dog owners have a responsibility to ensure that their dogs do not endanger others, and this includes properly restraining their dogs and taking the proper precautions to prevent injuries. As an injured victim, you may be able to file a personal injury claim and recover compensation for all injury-related costs
Common dog bite injuries include:
- Serious infections
- Damage to nerves and muscles
- Broken bones
- Psychological trauma and PTSD
- Permanent disfigurement
- Permanent scarring
Whether the dog that bit you belonged to a neighbor, a friend or a stranger, we can help you explore your sources of compensation. In some cases, we may file a claim with the dog owner's homeowner's insurance, rental insurance, or another source. Let's discuss your unique situation and how you can recover damages for your losses.
Evidence for a Dog Bite Injury Claim
In Tennessee, you need to prove the following for a valid dog attack claim:
