If you feel like you see dogs more than ever nowadays, there’s a good reason for that. As of 2017, there were nearly 90 million pet dogs in America—an increase of more than 20 million compared to 2000, when there were around 68 million in the U.S. While the vast majority of those dogs bring nothing but smiles and joy to owners, it’s important to remember that dogs can bite, even without provocation or a history of aggression.
Dogs have incredibly sharp teeth and powerful jaws. All breeds are capable of causing serious injuries when they bite, and those injuries can result in potentially disabling and life-threatening complications. Victims may suffer profuse bleeding, nerve damage, and infection, and they may develop large scars that can be emotionally distressing.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville dog bite lawyers work hard to get dog bite victims the compensation they deserve. We know that many victims are reluctant to file claims against owners, but not doing so can mean paying out of pocket for big medical bills. For example, many dog bite victims require everything from intensive wound care and surgery to overnight stays in the hospital and even prolonged physical rehabilitation.
Whether the dog that bit you is owned by a friend, a family member, or a complete stranger, it’s important to pursue the money you’re owed—especially if the bite occurred because the dog wasn’t leashed or enclosed. Contact us today to learn more about your options. We want to help you move forward with your life after such a traumatic injury, and we know what it takes to win.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!
After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.
I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
