Dog Bites

Dogs are often loveable pets. Those pets, however, can become territorial or protective of their owners, causing them to become aggressive. Unfortunately, sometimes that aggression turns to violence which leads to a dog bite. Dog bites can be painful and they can cause very extensive injuries. If you or a loved one have suffered from a dog bite, call The King Law Firm, PLLC today for a no obligation, free consultation.

It is often stated that there is a "one bite" rule in Mississippi, meaning unless the dog has bitten someone before, the owner is not liable for the first bite. While this is close, it is not completely true. In Mississippi, for a dog owner to be liable for a dog bite, a plaintiff has to prove that the dog exhibited "violent propensities" prior to the plaintiff's injury. Additionally, a plaintiff will need to prove that the owner of the dog either knew, or reasonably should have known, about the prior "violent propensities."

If you have been bitten by a dog, call Attorney Jacob King. Mr. King has handled numerous dog bite injury cases and knows how to get you the insurance compensation you deserve. Don't hesitate, act now!
