What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

State of Georgia works to pass dog bite law

Posted on March 9th, 2012 No Comments

The state of Georgia is looking to increase their laws in order to cut down on the number of dog bite cases.

The director of Animal Control and Care has stated that the number of dog bites has increased throughout the state and something needs to be done in order to prevent this.  The proposed bill, House Bill 685, passed earlier this week in the House.

The bill states that there is new procedures and requirements that must by dog owners if the dog is considered ‘dangerous’ or ‘viscous.’ A dangerous dog is one that has punctured the skin by scratching, biting or nipping a person.

If there is a second attack, the dog is then considered viscous. A viscous dog must be confined, microchipped ans also carry $50,000 in insurance. The bill also states that a person can not own more than one viscous dog.

If you or a loved one has been injured after being attacked by a dog, you need representation on your side that may be able to help you receive the compensation that you deserve. Contact the Jacksonville dog bite lawyers of the law offices of Donald Guthrie by calling 904-296-1088.
