Bitten By A Dog? You Have Rights.

Dog bites can be shocking and painful. Because dogs are so commonplace in our culture, and because the vast majority are docile and well-trained, getting bitten or injured by a dog can be a harsh reminder that they’re still animals that can attack without warning or provocation.

Because of the risks that dog bites pose to victims, Nashville has enacted ordinances for how they must be restrained when they’re near people in public and in private. When dog owners violate those ordinances, they can be held liable for any injuries their dogs cause.

The Nashville dog bite lawyers at Ponce Law know how serious dog bites can be. We’ve helped many victims who suffered debilitating damage that led to disabilities and permanent pain. It’s our goal to protect dog bite victims’ rights, which include:

  • The right to pursue compensation for bite-related expenses – Dog bites aren’t just painful—they can also be expensive. Many dog bite victims require surgery to close wounds and repair skin, tissue, and muscle damage. In addition, victims also may become disabled and unable to work, resulting in financial losses and career difficulties.
  • The right to an attorney – Many dog bite incidents involve few witnesses and may seem difficult to prove. Attorneys who understand dog bite cases know the laws concerning them, and they know what evidence to look for to help support your claim.

Don’t suffer in silence after you were hurt by a dog that was supposed to be leashed or in an enclosure. Get in touch with our legal team today. Call our office for a free consultation, and let us put our experience to work for you.

It was very easy to have a relationship with my attorney. It was professional but also comfortable. I was at ease. I wasn’t feeling like I was intimidated or anything. It was just comfortable.
