Dog bites and animal attacks are unpredictable

Dog bites and animal attacks are unpredictable, and can often result in major injuries and sometimes even death. Even more alarming is the fact that children suffer a majority of the dog bites and dog attacks. Many states, including Florida, have specific laws regarding dog bites. Florida has a strict liability dog bite statute that states that the owner of a dog is liable for damages inflicted by his or her dog if it bites a person who is either in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the property of the owner, regardless of the former viciousness. Dog owners are liable regardless of whether they have a reason to believe it would behave in a vicious manner.

Though a dog bite case or animal attack case may seem straight forward, the issues are quite complex and often involve questions of insurance coverage and a host of other legal concerns. In all dog bite and animal attack cases, it is crucial to take action, investigate the incident, preserve evidence, and carefully evaluate the injuries. If you have questions or concerns about injuries suffered as a result of a dog bite or animal attack, please contact us today. We offer a free consultation and work on a contingent fee basis, which means there are no fees or costs unless we recover any money. Our dog bite attorneys will help you.
