Nashville Dog Bite & Animal Attack Lawyers

Mauled By a Vicious Dog? Call Our Firm Immediately!

If you or your child has been mauled in a vicious dog attack, and you have significant medical bills, you should have an experienced personal injury lawyer guiding you through the legal process. Many serious animal attacks require multiple surgeries and ongoing medical treatment. It is wise to seek the counsel of a knowledgeable attorney who can help you ensure your future financial compensation.

The Nashville dog bite attorneys at Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge understand that an animal attack can be jarring both physically and emotionally. Dangerous breeds or large animals can cause devastating, lifelong injuries to adults and children alike. Our lawyers can listen to the facts of your situation and educate you on how the law intersects with your dilemma during a free, no-risk consultation.

Examining the Consequences of Animal Attacks

For the past 30 years, the team at Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge has been representing clients who have suffered the consequences of vicious dog bites and animal attacks, including:

  • Significant scarring
  • Serious infection
  • Multiple plastic surgeries
  • Substantial medical expenses
  • Disfigurement
  • Torn muscle

These serious injuries can lead to lifelong scarring, both physically and psychologically.

Taking the Right Steps After Suffering a Dog Bite Injury

Because of their trusting and playful nature, children are especially vulnerable to dog bites. Our attorney team is knowledgeable about Tennessee's dog bite legislation. We can examine the facts of your situation and properly advise you regarding your case and the challenges you might face through litigation. You can trust us to help you make the right decision after a serious animal attack.

It is not uncommon for individuals to be bitten by a dog and immediately wish to file a lawsuit. These decisions can be fueled by anger or frustration. In many circumstances, the injury itself might be superficial and could better be handled through negotiation with the dog's owner. Whatever the case may be, it is important that you discuss your options with an attorney before taking action.
