Dog Bite Injuries Chattanooga, Tennessee
Despite having the moniker as “man’s best friend”, many dogs can pose a serious threat to the health and well-being of others in a community. Dog attacks tend to also be incredibly graphic and impart massive trauma to victims — most of this damage stemming from the animal’s large canine teeth and claws. Even after the physical injuries of a dog bite heal, the emotional damage may never truly go away. Victims of dog bites often endure intense distress when in the presence of dogs later on in life due to the attack they suffered.

OWNERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DOG BITE INJURIES
Dog bite injuries leave victims with extensive injuries, many of which produce scars that the victim will have for the duration of their life. The medical bills as a result of one of these attacks can easily leave victims and their families financially strapped if a case against the negligent owner is not pursued. In some cases, the dog which attacked a person belongs to a friend or associate and they may be hesitant to pursue a claim of personal injury against them. What people in this situation need to realize is that the dog owner’s insurance will likely cover the damage caused by the animal and that none of their actual money is being taken away.
DOG OWNER RESPONSIBILITIES
Dog bite injuries are preventable and property owners can and should be held accountable for damages they cause. Dog bite injuries fall under premises liability law, which deals with any injuries caused by dangers on the owner’s property they are aware of.
Dog owners in Tennessee are responsible for:
- leashing or chaining their pets
- supervising any human interactions
- providing barriers/fencing
- restraining an aggressive canine
- reporting any dog bites that require medical attention
- preventing their dog from roaming freely
