When dog owners fail to properly restrain their pets or warn visitors property that a dog is on the premises, serious dog bite injuries can occur as a result. When these impact you or someone you love, Israoui Law provides the legal representation you need. Our experienced Conway dog bite lawyers hold negligent dog owners accountable so you can get the compensation you are entitled to in a claim.
We Can Help You Obtain Compensation
According to statistics from the Florida Department of Health, tens of thousands of people in our area suffer dog bites each year, with more than 600 requiring hospitalization due to the severity of their injuries. At Israoui Law, we are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help victims in these cases. Our Conway dog bite lawyer is dedicated to helping you get the compensation you need to recover. Common types of dog bite injuries suffered by clients in cases we represent include:
- Deep cuts and scratches due to the dog’s claws;
- Puncture wounds due to the dog’s teeth;
- Torn muscles and tendons, due to the force of the dog’s jaws;
- Broken bones and soft tissue injuries suffered while fighting the dog off.
Contrary to popular myth, a dog’s saliva carries numerous different types of bacteria, which can leave victims suffering potentially life-threatening infections and diseases. Post traumatic stress is also common after a dog bite or attack. Symptoms such as increased anxiety, headaches, depression, and difficulty sleeping can plaque victims for years after.
We Hold Reckless Dog Owners Accountable
In some states, dog owners cannot be held accountable for dog bites if the animal showed no prior signs of aggression in the past. This is known as the ‘one free bite’ rule and fortunately, it does not apply to dog bites in Conway. Under the Florida Statutes, dog owners can be held accountable anytime for dog bites and attacks that occur under the following situations:
- When dogs are allowed to run loose in neighborhoods and apartment complexes;
- When owners fail to leash dogs in parks and other public places;
- When they fail to properly restrain dogs when visitors approach their homes;
- When they fail to post warnings that a potentially dangerous dog is on the premises.
At Israoui Law, we take the actions needed to get you compensation when dog bites occur. Depending on the situation, the dog owner may have an insurance policy in place to cover part of your damages. If not or if the amount of coverage fails to adequately compensate you for your injuries, our Conway dog bite lawyer will not hesitate to take the dog owner to court.
