Aggressive Representation After Animal Attacks

When you live in a city of any size, whether it is Douglasville or Atlanta, you may not worry much about animal attacks. However, these incidents can and do happen, and they often leave people with devastating injuries.

At Faucette Law Firm LLC, we have aggressive, experienced trial attorneys who will fight to get the compensation you deserve after an animal has attacked you or someone you love. We will not rest and will not take a fee unless we are successful.

The Dangers That Come With Animal Attacks

Some animals react to what they perceive as threats and will continue to bite or scratch until the threat is gone. And, since their threatening behavior can be seemingly random, there is no way to plan for an attack.

Additionally, many animals inflict wounds that become full of potentially harmful germs, which can wreak havoc on a person long after the attack is over. This means that, even if a dog attack was brief and even if it was “only a scratch,” you may end up in the hospital.

Why Would Insurance Deny A Claim?

There is a principle in the law called “premises liability.” It states that any property owner must ensure that their property is safe. If it is not – and aggressive dogs and wildlife certainly count as an unsafe condition – and a person receives an injury because of those unsafe conditions, the property owner is liable.

While most property owners have insurance policies to cover such attacks, insurance companies fight each claim to minimize payouts. They will likely deny your claim, specifically in the hopes that you will give up.

What Should You Do After A Dog Bite?

Obviously, you should seek immediate medical attention when a dog or any other animal attacks you. Once doctors treat you, you should then contact us. We are here to fight to get your medical bills taken care of and ensure that you do not go into debt because of someone else’s negligence.
