Dog Bite Claim Attorney
We like to "think of dogs as a man’s best friend", and in many families they certainly are. That being said, if you, your child or somebody you love has been attacked or bitten by a dog or any other animal, you need to speak with an experienced Dog Bite Claims Attorney as soon as possible about your case. Whether you were bitten by a small dog or knocked down by a large dog, you could be facing extensive medical bills, lost wages and other expenses associated with the incident. Not every dog owner wants to believe that their dog is capable of hurting somebody, regardless of the facts, so they will try to deny the attack and avoid responding to your claim. That is why it is important to have a Dog Bite Claims Attorney on your side as soon as possible after an attack.
Early on in the case, the lawyer can get involved with the Animal Control investigation and the statements of witnesses, photographs and other case information in their file can help you and your lawyer prove your Dog Bite Injury Claim as well as assist with helping to document your injuries.
In the State of Florida, cases involving animal attacks are different than other areas of personal injury law. The attorney or lawyer representing you needs to be familiar with cases involving dog bites. For example, most insurance policies attempt to exclude animal and dog attack cases from their coverage. Without that coverage, you will not be able to recover any money for damages, unless you happen to get bitten by a dog with a very rich owner.
Your Dog Bite Attorney needs to understand the complexities and challenges associated with the laws about animal bites in Florida. Under Florida law, you are entitled to money damages if you are injured by a dog bite, against the dog owner, if you can show that you did not provoke the dog or that you did not enter a property that had a ‘bad dog’ warning sign visible at the entrance. Other states require the injured party to prove that the dog owner knew of the propensity of their dog to bite, by showing the dog had bitten in the past.
In Florida, the dog owner can be responsible for the first bite, even when the dog had never shown any signs of aggression in the past. You need a dog bite accident attorney who thoroughly understands the law in this area, and who will protect your rights and fight aggressively for justice and work hard to bring you a satisfactory legal outcome, given your factual situation.
You need immediate assistance from a lawyer that you can reach 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That is why all of my clients receive my cell phone number. Call or contact me with any questions you may have at 877-Gluck-Law.
