#184 Georgia Workers' Compensation Lawyer - What If I am Bitten By a Stray Dog?

So what if I'm bitten by a stray dog? Hello, my name is Ty Wilson. I’m a Georgia Personal Injury Attorney practicing Law in the state of Georgia. And our topic is, you're minding your own business, a stray dog comes up out of nowhere, attacks you and then runs off. So what do you do in that case? 

Well, you still want to treat your injuries. You want to obviously contact Animal Control and the police Department. And see if you can help point in the direction and possibly get the dog obtained. So they can find out, does the dog have rabies or something along those lines. So it's important that you still start that process. Get the medical care you need to attend to your injuries. 

However, if it is truly a stray dog and there is no one who is the owner of that dog, then it is going to be very difficult for you to be reimbursed for the injuries and for the pain and suffering that you've felt as a result of that animal attack, unfortunately. And so you may or may not have a claim. 

I would still encourage you to speak with a Georgia Personal Injury attorney and talk to them about the details of it. And get a report from Animal Control. And see what with their investigative resources they can find out and see if there is any potential for a claim. We hope that information has been helpful and we will see you in the next video. Thank you.
