5 Year Old Atlanta Boy Attacked by Pit Bull

As reported by the Atlanta Journal Constitution a 5 year old boy was attacked by a pit bull as he exited his vehicle.

The attack occurred in the 700 block of Lexington Avenue in Atlanta. Animal control was able to capture the animal.

In Atlanta, there are leash laws that apply to all dog owners. If found in violation of the leash laws the owner of the pit bull could be liable for the damages that were inflicted upon this 5 year old boy.

With pet ownership comes responsibility. The primary responsibility is to maintain control of your animal especially if you have what is considered a dangerous breed in a pit bull.

Circumstances on whether the pit bull was running free or escaped have not been released and according to police the investigation is still under way.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
