Understanding premises liability in Georgia

If you suffer an accident due to unsafe conditions, you may have a legal claim based on premises liability. Georgia law obligates property owners to keep their premises reasonably safe; failure to do so may constitute negligence and give rise to a lawsuit.

Know the signs of an aggressive dog and what to do

Dog bites are a common phenomenon in the United States, and they are becoming even more common in the state of Georgia. The reasons behind the phenomenon are hard to pinpoint, but the numbers do not lie, and they point to an upward trend. One of the best ways you can protect yourself and your loved ones is to know how to spot signs that a dog is stressed, frustrated, or likely to become aggressive. There are a variety of ways to tell.

What to do if you get bitten by a dog

No matter how sweet a dog is, there is always a possibility it could bite someone. Many bites are superficial and not serious. You may not even follow up if you are bitten, but there might be other circumstances in which you want to pursue legal action to get reimbursement for medical bills, lost wages and permanent injury.

Georgia ranks high for dog bite claims

Millions of Americans suffer dog bites every year, and the problem appears to be particularly pervasive in Georgia. According to the Insurance Journal, Georgia ranked ninth in the nation in 2014 for dog bite insurance claims, with the average cost of each claim filed in the state clocking in at $31,497. In most cases, homeowner's insurance, or renter's insurance, are the types of policies that cover dog bites.
