We understand the relevant Florida law and the standards of care that pet owners must observe. If you have been hurt after being bitten by a dog or another type of pet, prompt legal advice can give you the best chance of obtaining fair compensation.
Attentive Florida advocates advise clients on pet owner liability issues
From the moment we take your case, you can have peace of mind that we are with you at each step. We perform a complete investigation of the incident to determine where the legal responsibility lies. This can include an analysis of:
- The pet's history of attacks on people and other animals
- The owner's failure to use proper safeguards such as leashes and muzzles
- The specific breed's purported tendencies toward aggression
- The animal's mistreatment by the owner as a possible cause for its behavior
- Commands given or not given by the owner during the attack
Our experienced lawyers will develop a complete narrative to give you the strongest chance of winning a favorable result in court or through a settlement.
Responsive counselors seek full compensation for your dog-bite injuries
For many years, we have helped provide financial relief to dog-bite victims. An attack by a dog or another animal can leave long-lasting physical and psychological scars. Depending on the specific circumstances of your injury, we can help you pursue:
- Reimbursement for past and future medical expenses
- Compensation for lost wages
- Damages for pain and suffering
- Payment for other expenses associated with the injury
We understand how overwhelming it can be to recover from the harm of a serious dog bite and advocate for a resolution that covers each aspect of that harm. When a pet owner's negligence results in your injury, we will seek the maximum possible relief under the law.
