Protect Your Health and Rights to Compensation

If you or your child are bitten by a dog, you should:

  • Get immediate medical attention.
    Even if the injury appears minor, dog bites can get infected and cause serious complications. The doctor’s medical report of the injury can also be used as evidence to build your claim against a negligent dog owner.
  • Find out who owns the dog.
    If the dog attack occurred in a public area or in a yard, try to alert the owner and get his or her contact information — including name, address, and telephone number.
  • Talk to witnesses.
    If other people witnessed the bite — get their contact information. Their statements may help prove that you or your child didn’t provoke the dog to bite.
  • Document the dog bite injury.
    Write down what happened to the best of your ability. You can also take pictures of the injury to help prove the extent of the damage caused by the dog bite.
  • Contact a Nashville dog bite lawyer.
    An experienced law firm like Ponce Law can investigate your dog bite injury and collect evidence to build a strong claim.

    I highly recommend Ponce Law for injury claims. I was in and auto accident in Dec 2021, and a friend recommended this firm. They worked hard to get the best settlement possible for me. Natalie (atty) and Taylor (paralegal) are terrific. Again, highly recommended!

    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.
