Dog bites should be taken seriously in Tennessee

People may be tempted to underestimate the effects of a dog bite or chalk up dog bite injuries to being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Regardless of the nature of the incident or the severity of the injuries, dog bites should be taken seriously, and any Tennessee victim may gain by knowing his or her rights. Not knowing your rights can result in you having to cover the cost of expensive treatments or other expenses when there are other options.

Dog bites often occur in residential neighborhoods and can actually happen to anyone without cause or warning. Sometimes, if a dog owner is aware they are in the wrong for not controlling their dog, they may try to deflect blame or even contend the dog in question isn't even theirs. This can leave a victim at odds and unclear about the next course of action.

Dog bite injuries are also about much more than assigning negligence or culpability. Dog bites can lead to injuries that lead to significant medical bills. Moreover, if a dog has been aggressive or has bitten before, not holding the owner culpable may lead to future injuries for another victim.

If bitten by a dog in Tennessee, you may be entitled to compensation to pay for the injuries and other expenses. That compensation may be necessary so you can obtain the help you need and so you can help ensure another person does not become victim of the same dog. Our firm has a web page that explains why dog bites deserve to be taken seriously and also clarifying why legal help may be needed.
