There are more dog-friendly workplaces, restaurants, stores, and parks than ever before in Nashville and throughout Middle Tennessee. While many people welcome this change, it has increased the risk of dog bites—especially when owners fail to properly leash or enclose their dogs.

Cities in the mid-state area have leash laws and local ordinances that require all dog owners to keep their pets leashed, enclosed, or otherwise restrained to prevent them from biting or attacking other people. That’s because even dogs with no history of aggression can bite when they’re startled, anxious, or frightened.

Regardless of their size or breed, dogs have the potential to cause serious injuries when they bite. Victims can suffer permanent nerve damage and face traumatic levels of blood loss, especially when dog bites sever or nick arteries. In some cases, dog bites can even be life-threatening, as bacteria inside dogs’ mouths can enter the bloodstream and travel throughout the body.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville dog bite attorneys are here to hold negligent owners responsible for the injuries their animals cause to other people. If you or someone you love suffered a serious injury due to an unleashed or unrestrained dog, we want to hear from you.

We know how to collect evidence that proves the origin and severity of your injuries, and we’re ready to fight to get you the compensation you deserve for your medical bills and lost wages. Call today for a free consultation.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
