Dog Bites & Animal Attacks

Helping Dog Bite Victims in Florida Receive Compensation

Your Advocates are here to help you file a premises liability claim after being bitten by an uncontrolled or aggressive dog owned by someone else. Our personal injury lawyers in Fort Myers have decades of combined legal experience and have handled complex personal injury cases. We will want to seek damages on your behalf either through a settlement or court litigation that acknowledges all of your injuries following an animal attack.

Injuries that may be caused by a dog bite include:

  • Lacerations
  • Nerve damage
  • Infection
  • Permanent muscle damage

Psychological damage is also a common consequence of vicious animal attacks. People who have been bitten by an aggressive dog frequently report feeling phobic and anxious whenever a dog is near, even a kind, docile one. This emotional trauma must also be taken into account when considering the damages you deserve through compensation.

Consult with our team today to learn more about your options and how to begin a claim.

Can a dog bite victim be held liable?

Dog bite claims represent an area of litigation that is difficult to navigate due to the fact that the aggressor cannot testify or explain its actions. The dog’s owner will be held accountable for their canine’s behavior, which allows them some room for interpretation. In many cases, this translates to liability being pushed back onto the dog bite victim.

A person bitten by a dog may be held liable, partially so, if they were:

  • Trespassing illegally on the property.
  • Attempting to harm the dog’s owner or family.
  • Taunting, intimidating, or provoking the dog.

With a personal injury attorney’s assistance, it may be possible to dismantle the claims of the opposition and keep liability on the dog’s owner.

Call (239) 970-6844 to begin seeking compensation.

While Florida does permit a four-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims, it is not in your best interests to wait that long. The sooner you file, the stronger your evidence will likely be and the less prepared the defendant will be.

Give yourself that useful advantage by contacting our Fort Myers dog bite attorneys and discovering your legal options.
