Is the Dog Owner Liable for Injuries?

"A dog came out of nowhere and stopped in front of my bicycle. Is the dog's owner liable for my injuries from the resultant bicycle crash?"

When a dog suddenly appears in front of your bicycle and causes you to crash and suffer serious injuries, you may have a legal case against the dog's owner. There are leash laws in Georgia that require that a dog be on a leash, muzzled, or enclosed in a public area.

If the dog is roaming free and mauls or attacks someone because the owner fails to follow the leash law, then the dog's owner may be held accountable. Georgia law allows the victim of a dog bite or injury to pursue financial compensation against the negligent dog owner. Such compensation could help cover pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and more.

When a dog is off of its leash or not fenced in, a dog attack or bicycle accident in Atlanta or elsewhere in Georgia may occur. If you or a loved one has fallen victim to an Atlanta bicycle crash by no fault of your own, you should not have to pay for your damages. You may have the right to seek damages for your injuries.
