Athens Dog Bite & Animal Attack Injury Attorneys
The Weinstein Firm helps people who have been injured by dogs and other animals in Athens
Dog bites and other animal-related injuries accounted for more than one-third of all homeowners insurance liability claim dollars paid out in 2014, costing in excess of $530 million nationally. This shows that animal-attack incidents and injuries are very common, and that compensation is available to victims of an animal injury in Athens.
Legal experience is crucial when handling a serious Athens dog bite or animal attack claim
At The Weinstein Firm LLC, we understand the legal regulations involved in dog bite cases. We know how to build and support a successful injury claim. We are exceptionally skilled at negotiating with insurance adjusters to secure the highest possible settlements for our clients.
What types of injuries have the Weinstein Firm's clients suffered?
Some of the animal-attack injuries our clients have suffered include:
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Severed fingers
- Punctured wounds
- Scratches and cuts
- Physiological trauma
- Permanent disability
In cases where an owner violated a “leash law,” failed to properly supervise their animal, or simply did not put up adequate warning signs, they may be liable in the eyes of the law. If a person knowingly owns a dangerous or vicious animal, they may be liable for even more damages and may face criminal charges as well. The Weinstein attorneys evaluate every case carefully, and we identify any available source of compensation.
