Orlando Dog Bite Lawyer
Dog Bites & Animal Attacks
Many will agree with the proposition that a dog is a man’s best friend. A dog that is loving and loyal to one person, may pose a danger towards others. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 4.7 million people a year are bitten by dogs; 800,000 of which seek medical attention and half of these are children. Of those injured, 386,000 require treatment in an emergency department and about a dozen die.
In Florida, the owner of a dog is strictly liable for injuries their dog causes to you, regardless of whether or not the dog had ever been vicious before; and regardless of whether the owner had reason to believe the dog would behave in a vicious manner. Victims of dog or animal attacks may be able to recover damages without the need to prove negligence. Injured victims typically incur expenses related to the incident such as medical treatment, rehabilitation, medication, or lost income due to their inability to work. They may also lose the ability to perform various activities of normal daily living, in both the short and long term, and may endure pain and suffering or permanent scarring. Often times, these types of incidents are specifically covered by the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance and you may be entitled to compensation for your loss, contact our Orlando dog bite lawyers to learn more.
