Vicious Dogs Can Be Serious Liability Risk

Georgia injury lawyers know that dog bite incidents often result in very serious injuries and in some cases, death. We have had a number of these cases over the years. The most recent case involved a real estate agent who was attacked by a large dog. Although the dog was tied up at its owners home, it was inadequately restrained by a collar which was itself a defective product. As a result, the dog got loose and literally bit off the entire calf of the female victim. We sued the homeowner for negligence and the manufacturer of the collar on a products liability theory and obtained a sizeable settlement from both.
It was reported today that a former UPS driver has sued Joe Namath alleging that he was attacked and seriously injured by Namath’s dogs while he was making a delivery to his home. It is alleged that the victim in that case has undergone four surgeries and has been totally disabled from work since the incident in 2007. If the allegations are true, lets hope that Namath has a large liability insurance policy.
