Georgia is among many states in the U.S. that has a strict liability dog bite statute. This makes dog owners liable if their dogs cause injury or harm. Unlike the “one-bite” rule (which implies liability for injuries only if the owner had reason to know that the dog was dangerous,) Georgia’s strict liability statute can works to a victim’s legal advantage.
In short, Georgia law does not allow for the dog owner to dispute who was at fault. In most cases, the owner is automatically responsible to pay for damages.
