Dogs of all sizes can cause serious physical damage to humans.
Common injuries caused by dogs include:
Even though attacks by pit bulls, rottweilers, and huskies make up a majority of reported injuries, smaller dogs such as chihuahuas can also cause significant injuries. Children in particular are vulnerable to catastrophic injuries because of their fragile bodies. No matter how serious your injuries - physical and emotional - our personal injury attorneys can help you recover compensation for your losses.
Since the Dianna Acklen Act passed in 2007, the State of Tennessee has very specific guidelines as it relates to dog bites. To summarize, the dog must not be running at large and be under reasonable control. The law does not protect people who provoke or harass the dog that bites them if the dog is protecting its owner from an attack, if the dog bites a trespasser, or if the dog is in a crate when it bites.
If your dog attack happened while you were at work, we can also assist you with filing a workers' compensation claim. It is common for postal workers and other transportation employees to encounter dangerous and aggressive dogs while on the job. We can help you obtain the benefits you need to recover.
