Understanding Georgia’s Dog Bite Statute

Georgia is a “negligence” state when it comes to dog bite laws. This means that the dog owner should have prior knowledge of the dog’s aggressive behavior and that he/she has been careless or has allowed the attack to happen. Of course, with this clause, every dog owner could easily deny that they knew about the dog’s viciousness. However, our Columbus injury lawyer is experienced and has comprehensive knowledge on proven strategies that can validate your claim.

In proving a dog bite claim, it is important that we show the following:

  • The dog or animal was dangerous or vicious
  • The owner of the dog was careless and has allowed the attack to happen
  • The dog or animal was not provoked when it attacked
  • You were legally allowed to be in the place when the attack occurred

There are also some areas in Georgia where dogs are required to be on a leash at all times. If the animal attack has happened in one of these areas and the dog was not on a leash, this could show negligence on the part of the owner and can help the case immensely.
