Dog Bites

Fry | Goehring successfully helps the injured recover the compensation they deserve.

Settlement over twenty times the prior offer
We filed a law-suit, and shortly thereafter we obtained a settlement over twenty times the prior offer.
A driver that was illegally taking opioids
Our Firm helped a gentleman that was hit by a driver that was illegally taking opioids, which affected his driving. This caused serious injuries to our client. We had multiple depositions, worked with a toxicologist and other experts, and were ultimately able to obtain a very large, and confidential settlement, for our very deserving client.
Five times the initial offer
We received a referral case from another attorney. It was a hit and run case with a low offer, which is common for these types of cases. After our firm filed suit, we were able to take the case to mediation and settled for 5 times the initial offer.
Five times the initial offer
Following mediation, the insurance company ended up agreeing to pay 2.5 times the amount of its prior statutory offer of settlement to resolve the case and avoid a jury trial.
Recently settled at mediation for a confidential, but significant amount
We represented a very nice Hispanic lady that was severely injured when a thermos she was carrying blew up causing her eye damage. We spent significant time and resources on this case, and working with another Firm, recently settled at mediation for a confidential, but significant amount. Our client and her family were thrilled that we took the time, and the risk, to assist in this very serious matter.
Settlement over six times the previous offer
We recently represented a man that was bitten by a dog, that was not on a leash and not restrained as required by the applicable laws and ordinances. The initial offer to this gentleman did not even cover his medical bills. Our firm took over his case, and we secured a settlement of over six times the previous offer. We were happy to secure a great settlement for one of many dog bites cases that we handle every year.

Dog Bite Lawyers in Atlanta


Many Americans are not aware just how common dog bites are in our country. Each year, several millions of individuals are bitten by dogs who have not been watchfully guarded by their owners. Even though not all of these attacks have lasting consequences, thousands of them do end up in the emergency room. Not only do the victims endure severe physical pain, but the horrific nature of a dog bite often leads to long-term scarring, both physically and emotionally. Some cases even end in tragic fatalities.

If you or a loved one have recently faced such an ordeal, quickly get in touch with our attorneys so we can establish a powerful case for your retribution.

Steps to Take Immediately After a Dog Bite

The most important thing to do after you have been bitten by a dog is to make sure that you have proper medical attention, since bites are often not only excruciatingly painful, but can quickly lead to infection. As soon as medical support is on its way, it is critical to get information about the dog and the owner, or you might not be able to get the full amount of compensation you deserve. If there are any witnesses nearby, ask them to help you record critical information.

Some of the facts you will want to gather as soon as possible include:

  • The name and address of the dog’s owner
  • Information about the dog owner’s insurance company
  • The dog’s record of vaccinations
  • Photos of your wound immediately after the attack and in the following days
  • Images of your location
  • Testimonies of any witnesses and their contact information

What Can You Recover After a Dog Bite?

Because every case is different, it is impossible to predict the exact figure you will be able to obtain without our lawyers carefully analyzing the details of your individual claim. However, there are generally certain kinds of damages that most victims of vicious dog bites are able to seek. You are not limited to claims for current medical bills — any future costs incurred for rehabilitation, medicines, and therapeutic treatment, both mental and physical, can be recovered too. Surgery for scarring can cost an exorbitant amount, so it is important to include this in a claim as well. If you have lost wages from missed work, or even lost a job which requires an active physical role that you cannot sustain in your condition, it is important to claim for this.

The Importance of Calling Our Attorneys Following a Dog Bite

Although most dog owners will have insurance, it is critical to avoid talking to these adjusters when they call after you have suffered a bite. While you can take down their name, telephone number, and address, it is critical to never discuss either the claim or possibility of settlement, or even set up a potential meeting.

Instead, immediately get in contact with our dedicated legal team. Big insurance companies will be doing everything they can to limit the amount of compensation you receive. They will attempt to use anything you say to suggest that you were at least partially at fault and do not deserve full compensation. In order to support you in gaining the compensation you deserve for all your pain and suffering, reach out to our dedicated dog bite lawyers in Atlanta for rigorous advocacy.
