Bradenton Dog Bite Injury Attorneys
Getting attacked by a dog can be traumatic and serious. Typically, people injured by dogs require immediate medical attention and care. They also can use some help understanding what happened to them and what they are entitled to under Florida law.
If you or someone in your family has been the victim of a dog attack, a Bradenton personal injury attorney with experience handling dog injury cases can help. At the Davila Law Group, we want to know what happened and how you’re feeling so we can get to work helping you obtain fair compensation for your injury, pain and suffering.
Your Bradenton Dog Bite Injury Case
Under Florida law, dog owners are liable for damages their dogs cause when the people affected are in public places or lawfully in a private place, including the dog owner’s property. Therefore, to build a dog bite injury case, we have to know who owns the dog and where the attack took place.
We also need to know if there was a warning posted about the dog, since Florida state law stipulates that a dog owner is not liable for damages if he has posted a noticeable warning sign saying “Bad Dog.” However, this does not apply if the person who was injured by the dog is under six years old or if the dog owner’s actions actually led to the attack.
In a dog attack injury case, we also need to know if the person injured was negligent in some way and could, therefore, be partially responsible for the attack. In such cases, the owner’s liability could be reduced.
Recovering Damages for Your Dog Bite Injury
Damages for dog bite injuries can include financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage. The exact amount will depend on the seriousness and extent of your injury. The dog owner’s insurance might cover the damages if the attack occurred on his property, but even if the owner’s insurance does not cover the damages, we will fight for fair compensation for your injury, using every resource available.
