Girsky represents adults and children in Tennessee and Kentucky who have suffered cuts, scarring, emotional trauma and other personal injury as a result of dog bites or other animal attacks. As your advocate, attorney Steven Girsky will put his 25 years of experience to work for you to obtain maximum compensation for your medical expenses, financial losses and the trauma you or your child has endured.

The Aftermath Of A Dog Attack May Be Severe

Dog owners are responsible for following all state leash laws and local ordinances to ensure that their dogs are kept under reasonable control. Some ordinances and residential landlords restrict ownership of breeds that are known to be aggressive such as American pit bulls, Doberman pinschers, Rottweilers and German shepherds. If a dog owner is in violation of any of these laws and you or your child is attacked, you may seek compensation directly from the dog owner or his or her insurance company.

Clarksville dog bite injury attorney Steven Girsky will review the circumstances of your case and help you seek compensation for injuries such as:

  • Lacerations and deep cuts
  • Nerve damage
  • Facial injuries
  • Hand and arm injuries
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Emotional trauma or psychological scarring

Attorney Girsky offers the personalized service and dedicated representation you need and deserve. He will deal with the dog owner or insurance company on your behalf to achieve maximum compensation.

Compassion In Cases Involving Children

Dog bites involving children are particularly sensitive cases. Children often do not fully understand how to recognize when a dog is being aggressive or when to stop teasing one. Regardless, parents can hold the dog’s owner accountable for any negligence on his or her part.

In addition to physical injuries and scars, a young child who is bitten or attacked by a dog may suffer long-term emotional scars or fear of dogs. In some cases, particularly those involving small children or infants, dog attacks may be fatal.
