Has a dog bite, dog mauling, snake attack, or other animal attack left you or a family member with serious injuries? We can help you hold the animal's owner liable for the damages you've sustained.

Contact our Fulton County personal injury attorneys and wrongful death lawyers today for a FREE initial consultation regarding your personal injury or wrongful death case.
We handle all personal injury and wrongful death cases on a contingency basis - you pay nothing unless we recover for you.
We deal with many types of dog bite and animal attack cases, including those involving:
• All breeds of dogs, including pit bulls, Rottweilers, German shepherds, Dobermans, and other breeds
• Non-traditional pets, such as lizards, snakes, pigs, and other animals
• Injuries to children
• Child mauling
When a dog attack occurs, it is not only the physical injuries and scarring that must be considered. Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and other psychological and emotional effects that may not be readily apparent must be taken into consideration.
Whether the dog or animal in question was fenced or loose, leashed or unleashed, the animal's owner is responsible for the actions of his / her animal. It may a question of negligent security or failure to adequately warn passer-bys regarding the presence of a dangerous dog. Or, it may be a case where a dangerous dog was running loose in the neighborhood. Whatever the circumstances, we can help get to the bottom of things and hold the owner responsible.
We guarantee that you will talk directly with your attorney on a regular basis - that is our promise.
"Your case our priority"
If you are injured in an automobile accident, you should seek immediate medical attention. If the other driver is at fault and you wish to make a claim for personal injuries, you should contact an attorney who specializes in personal injury as soon as possible.
You are entitled to recover your reasonable and necessary medical expenses caused by the at fault driver. However, most insurance companies do not pay medical expenses as you treat. Medical expenses will be included in the final one time settlement.
Cases are generally not settled until you reach maximum medical improvement and are released by your doctor. Once released by your doctor, we promptly complete and forward a settlement demand to the insurance company.
Our fees are contingent - meaning, we get paid only after your case is settled or after a verdict. Our fees are 33 1/3% and go to 40% if we are forced to file a lawsuit.
Your case is our priority.
