Aggressive Tennessee Lawyer Pursues Justice for Victims of Dog Bites
Assertive attorney battles for compensation when animals attack in the Columbia area
Dog bites can occur without warning, causing severe physical and emotional damage. These attacks might even create a risk of disease or infection. At Gene Hallworth Attorney at Law, as a determined personal injury attorney, I treat dog-bite cases with the seriousness they deserve. I understand the relevant Tennessee law and the standards of care that pet owners must observe. If you have been hurt after being bitten by a dog or another type of pet, I provide prompt legal advice that gives you the best chance of obtaining fair compensation.
Determined Tennessee advocate holds negligent pet owners accountable
From the moment I take your case, I begin fighting for you by thoroughly investigating the incident to determine where the legal responsibility lies. This can include an analysis of:
- The pet's history of attacks on people and other animals
- The owner's failure to use proper safeguards such as leashes and muzzles
- The specific breed's purported tendencies toward aggression
- The animal's mistreatment by the owner as a possible cause for its behavior
- Commands given or not given by the owner during the attack
You can count on me to develop a complete narrative that gives you the strongest chance of winning a favorable result in court or through a settlement.
Tenacious litigator presses for full compensation for your dog-bite injuries
For many years, I have fought on behalf of dog-bite victims to achieve the compensation they deserve. An attack by a dog or another animal can leave long-lasting physical and psychological scars. Depending on the specific circumstances of your injury, I will seek:
- Reimbursement for past and future medical expenses
- Compensation for lost wages
- Damages for pain and suffering
- Payment for other expenses associated with the injury
I understand how overwhelming it can be to recover from the harm of a serious dog bite, so I am relentless in pursuing a resolution that covers each aspect of that harm. When a pet owner's negligence results in your injury, I will seek the maximum possible relief under the law.
