Regardless of whether a dog has bitten someone before, the owners of the dog are liable for any bites or injuries suffered by the person attacked. Even if the dog was with another person other than the owner and was not properly confined or on a leash when the dog attack occurred, that person can also be held liable for damages suffered by a dog bite lawyer.
Tennessee canine-injury laws are a little more complex. Thus, a lawyer that specializes in this specialty area is key to helping bite victims seek compensation.
