Why We Take on Dog Bite Cases
We are highly motivated to secure justice and financial recovery for our deserving clients in any personal injury case. With dog bite cases, however, our motivation is highly personal, as our lead lawyer has had a loved one who was severely injured in a dog attack.
Here is Attorney Jason Porter on the matter:
“I help people who’ve been hurt by dogs because it’s something I understand. I know the pain, fear, and uncertainty that comes from a dog bite, and I’ve seen the long recovery first hand. As a lawyer, my job is to help you recover money to pay medical bills, lost wages, and to compensate you for your injuries. I will do that. I will do that even better because I’ve been through it myself.”
Strict Liability Laws & Your Dog Bite Injuries
Florida has a strict liability law for dog bite injuries. This means that dog owners are liable for any injuries caused by their dogs. If you or a loved one was attacked by a dog, the owner is automatically liable, even if the dog never before demonstrated vicious behavior and the owner had no reason to believe the dog would attack. This means that with a solid dog bite claim, you could recover financial damages for your injuries.
Exceptions to the Strict Liability Rule
There are cases when a dog owner will not be held responsible for an attack. If you were trespassing on private property, or if you were provoking the dog, then you may not be awarded compensation for your injuries.
