Prove Your Case
Under Georgia law, there are two main ways to prove your case if you have been bitten or attacked by a dog. (insert copy about helping prove)
“Running at Large”
The first way to prove your case is to show that the dog was “running at large”. The Fulton County Code of Ordinances states that it is unlawful for the owner, custodian or harborer of any dog to allow said dog to leave the premises of the person unless it is securely under leash. This basically means that if the county or the city has a leash law, and the dog was not on a leash at the time of the attack, you have a valid case.
The second way to prove your case is to show that the dog had “vicious propensities”. This means that the owner of the dog knew that the dog was or could have been dangerous and acted without reasonable care to restrain.
If you have been attacked by a dog and are confident or unsure if the incident falls into one of these two categories, call HS Law at 404-400-1175 for your free consultation to address your case.
