Ocala Dog Bite Injury Attorneys
When you’re hurt by a dog, you should make sure you get medical attention and take proper care of the injury to avoid infection. You should also take care to document all of your medical expenses related to injury. The dog’s owner could be liable for the damages you’ve suffered, and you would want to know the extent of your expenses so you can get compensated fully and fairly.
In addition, getting the dog owner’s name, address, and contact information will be helpful later on. Similarly, if anyone witnessed the dog attack, you should try to get their names and contact information, if possible, since their accounts of what happened could be more trustworthy than the owner’s.
After your injury has been taken care of, talking with an experienced Ocala personal injury attorney about the dog attack can help you determine your best course of action. The personal injury attorneys of the Davila Law Group have experience helping dog attack victims and want to help you with your dog attack injury case.
Florida Dog Bite Injury Cases
In dog attack injury cases, we collect as much information as possible about what happened during the attack. We also need to know all about your injuries, your recovery, and your medical expenses.
Additionally, we’ll need to know where you were when the attack occurred and if there was a warning posted about the dog. Under Florida law, dog owners are liable for damages suffered by people bitten by their dogs when those people are in public places or lawfully in a private place, including the dog owner’s property.
The owner is not liable for damages if, however, there was a warning sign reading “Bad Dog” noticeably displayed, unless the dog bite victim is under six years old or the owner’s actions led to the attack. Also, if you were negligent in some way and are therefore partially responsible for the attack, the owner’s liability will be reduced.
Recovering Damages in a Dog Bite Injury Case
At the Davila Law Group, we prepare dog attack injury cases carefully and thoroughly in order to obtain full and fair compensation for you. Depending on the type and extent of your injury, you could be compensated for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage.
It’s possible that the dog owner’s insurance will cover the damages from the dog attack if it occurred on his property. If the attack occurred elsewhere, we will still use every resource available to fight for just compensation for your injury.
