Dog Bite Injuries
Common dog bite injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Nerve damage
- Permanent disfigurement
- Psychological trauma
- Rabies and other infections
Children are more likely to suffer head, neck or throat injuries from a dog attack because they are shorter than adults. Also, elderly people are more susceptible to broken bones, particularly their arms, wrists, and hips.
These injuries are often caused by a negligent dog owner who was not watching the dog or keeping the animal properly restrained. The Savannah dog bite lawyers at The Nye Law Group have proudly held many negligent dog owners accountable for the life-changing injuries they have caused.

What to do After a Dog Bite
Our Savannah dog bite lawyers recommend following these steps if you are bitten by a dog:
- Seek medical treatment immediately
- Obtain medical documentation of your injuries
- Obtain contact information of the owner of the dog and anyone who witnessed the attack
- File a police report and obtain a copy if possible
- If you are able, take pictures of the dog, the location of the attack and your injuries
- Save any clothing from the attack
- Avoid communicating with the dog owner’s insurance company
Your next step is to call our dog bite lawyers who can help you pursue a claim against the parties responsible for the attack. We will focus on building a strong case to help you recover compensation while you focus on healing from your injuries.

In Georgia, dog owners can be held liable for a dog bite if:
- The dog is considered “vicious” or “dangerous”
- The dog was loose because of the owner’s carelessness
- The injured person did not provoke the attack
Insurance companies will try to exploit every loophole in those standards to prevent their client from being held liable. That is why you need a skilled Savannah dog bite lawyer who will build a strong case that can counter arguments from insurance companies.
The Nye Law Group’s dog bite lawyers will thoroughly investigate your claim to determine:
- Your involvement in the incident, if any
- The responsibilities of the dog owner under Georgia law
- The temperament of the dog and if it had a history of attacks
- Whether warning signs were posted where the attack happened
If you are entitled to compensation, insurance companies will do whatever they can to pay out the least amount of compensation. That is why you need a dog bite lawyer with experience in securing fair compensation from insurers. Our Savannah dog bite lawyers have proudly won just compensation for many victims of dog attacks.
Your initial consultation with us is absolutely free and you do not pay us anything unless we secure fair compensation for your injuries.
