North Mississippi Dog Bite Attorneys

We Are Backed by 100+ Years of Combined Experience

Many people treat dogs and other pets as family members. However, dogs and other animals — even those without a violent history — have been known to bite and attack other people, causing serious injuries, including scarring and disfigurement. These cases are particularly tragic when they involve children, as they are less able to protect themselves and more likely to develop lifelong psychological trauma when it comes to dogs.

The attorneys at Chatham Gilder Howell Pittman PLLC can help you with your case. Our attorneys represent victims who have suffered injuries because of a dangerous dog or vicious animal attack on someone else's property. Whether the incident happened in Mississippi or Tennessee, we will work hard to recover damages that account for the full extent of your injuries, including treatment now and later on.

Mississippi Dog Bite Laws

Mississippi follows a “one bite rule” when it comes to dog bite liability. This means that a dog owner is typically only held responsible for a dog bite if they had a reason to know, or should have reasonable known, that the dog would act aggressively towards someone else.

Building A Case Designed to Recover Full and Fair Compensation

Our lawyers believe in discovering the truth behind all types of premises liability cases, which is why we fully investigate circumstances leading up to an animal attack. We will:

  • Uncover the reasons why the animal attacked in the first place
  • Determine if the animal has a history or aggressive behavior
  • Consult with medical experts to determine the extent of your injuries
  • Determine the full scope of medical costs, including medical treatments or psychological counseling

We will examine the roles of any potentially liable party, up to and including the animal's owner, a landlord, tenant, property owner, or any other potentially negligent party and hold them accountable for your injuries. We will also let you know what the strengths and possible weaknesses of your case may be.

If you or a loved one has been hurt as the result of a dog bite or an animal attack, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact our Southaven dog bite injury attorneys at 662-222-0597 to schedule a free consultation.
