Can You Be Compensated For Dog Attacks?
Dog bites are often unexpected, but can be very damaging. Dog owners are responsible for injuries that their pets cause, even with no previous offenses or signs of aggression. You have every right to file a personal injury claim after an animal bite, and you will want to do so if you are facing medical bills because of this.
The only time a dog owner is not liable is for a bite that occurs while the victim is trespassing on private property. The amount of benefits the victim can recover may also be lowered if he or she was partially responsible for the bite.
How Do These Cases Work?
Some dog owners will carry pet insurance for situations like this, while others will not. Especially in cases involving insurance companies, you will want a legal ally at your side to handle these interactions, though legal help is invaluable in any dog bite case.
These cases are treated similarly to other personal injury cases, but the nuances of Florida’s dog bite laws are important to understand. Attorney Cameron D. Simpson knows these laws and has worked with these cases many times before.
