Compensation for Dog Bite Claims
Injuries from a dog bite can be life-altering. Often, victims are left with injuries such as amputation, broken bones, disfigurement, and serious infections. Victims may also experience lifelong emotional trauma and may need reconstructive surgery for permanent and painful scarring.
Have you or a loved one been attacked by a dog? Under Tennessee law, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages, including:
- Medical bills

One other problem you may unfairly have to deal with is the liable insurance company harassing you into accepting any amount, whether it covers your expenses and other damages or not. Our founding attorney, Jeff Roberts, has experience as a former insurance claims adjuster, meaning we know how to take on large insurance providers. You can be sure that we will fight to get the justice you deserve. We can help you understand what you can do.
Tennessee Dog Bite Law
Tennessee laws regarding dog bites can be quite complex. For instance, the state allows for dog bite victims to recover damages caused by careless dog owners. In some situations, however, it can be extremely difficult to prove that an owner acted negligently, particularly in cases where someone is killed in this kind of attack and there are no witnesses or when the victim of the dog bite is just a child. Additionally, there are various state laws on dog attacks, apart from the ones in different cities and counties, which sometimes are at variance with one another.
After you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a dog attack, you need the experience of Jeff Roberts & Associates, PLLC’s Nashville dog bite lawyers to help you fight for the justice you deserve.
