Vicious Dog Attacks
If you have been attacked by a dog in Tennessee and suffered serious injuries we may be able to help you recover damages and help send a message to the dog owner! While Tennessee does not have a "dog bite statute". The owner of a dog is still liable under general negligence theories of law. The statute of limitations in Tennessee for such claims is one (1) year from the attack.
At Harris Law Office we offer attorneys and support staff well trained in the area of personal injury law. Our job is to not only pursue recovery of damages but also to help protect the community from having such an attack occur again in the future.

Dog attacks cause approximately 4.5 million injuries annually, 800,000 of which require medical attention. Thats roughly 1 out of every 5-6 attacks.

Liability for the attack is always a key issue. Was the dog running loose? Where you on someelse property at the time of the attack. Has this dog attacked before? Did the owner of the dog provide warnings of the dogs? In answering these questions you can start to outline the liability of the owner.How do I protect my self and others.
While dog bites are not uncommon in Tennesse, the only way to reduce the attacks is hold the owner responsible.What does it Cost.
We will give you one free consultation on the case, to see if it is something we can help you with. Our personal injury files are handled on a contingency fee, usually 33 1/3 percent of the recovery. If you simply want to discuss the value of a case, still feel free to call.
Our office handles injuries that normally result in surgery or permanent impairments, however, some back injuries for example may result with injuries where surgery is not suggested. i.e. nerve damage.
Communication and Trust
It is important that you trust the attorney and are able to communicate freely with the office. There are law firms that advertise in the Nashville area, that you will never see in the Courthouse. Why. Because they live out of state and hire an associate to handle the work. Make sure you get what you are paying for.
No honest attorney care guarantee you a result. Each case bears it own risks. We reduce the risks by being proficient in Injury Law in Tennessee. A good firm is always ready to try the case, instead of just settle because it is the easy way out.
