Holding Owners Liable for Dog Bites
Anyone who owns a dog in Florida takes on the responsibility of making sure the dog does not bite or otherwise attack people. That responsibility exists regardless of whether the dog is obviously dangerous or has never threatened to bite anyone.
If you have been injured due to a dog bite or other animal attack, you are almost certainly entitled to financial compensation from the dog's owner. So it is important to get a medical evaluation of your injury and to contact our firm right away.
Dog bites can cause serious, long-term injuries, and substantial scarring. Dog owners who do not take affirmative steps to prevent these types of injuries can be held liable.
Moving Quickly to Seek the Compensation You Deserve
Compensation for dog bite injuries often comes from the homeowners insurance policy that covers the house where the dog lives. This is typically the case, even when the attack occurs elsewhere, such as on a sidewalk or at a park.
Our firm attorneys are experienced at evaluating the evidence in dog bite cases, and will devote all the time and resources necessary to pursue the compensation that you deserve. For experienced, aggressive legal representation from a firm dedicated to your best interest, contact us today.
