Dog Bite Attorneys

Being bitten or attacked by a dog may cause serious personal injuries and scarring, resulting in extensive medical bills and ongoing psychological issues including depression. Studies of shown that more than 4.7 million people in the United States are bitten by dogs every year. In Florida, under most circumstances a dog's owner is responsible any time their dog bites someone.

The State of Florida through various Florida Statutes, imposes a "strict liability" standard for responsibility upon the dog's owner. This means the dog's owner is responsible for the personal injuries and damages their dog causes, even if the owner had no prior knowledge that their dog was aggressive or vicious.

Dog owners may avoid liability if they posted a prominently displayed sign on their property stating the specific words of "Warning Bad Dog." Dog owners may also be relieved of responsibility, if the person who is bitten provoked the dog. Although this will generally be addressed by a jury, under the theory of comparative negligence.

If you live in the State of Florida, and were injured or bitten by a dog or another animal, it is important to be aware of your rights. Your ability to recover compensation for the personal injuries, scarring and disfigurement which are caused by a dog bite or attack, depends upon the actual injuries suffered and any medical care received.

Therefore, it is imperative to immediately photograph your injuries to document and preserve the evidence of such injuries and scarring. These photographs greatly assist in the presentation of your claim to an insurance adjuster or jury.
