We have recently published two blogs that pertain to dog bites. While it is possible for a dog bite to cause only minor injuries, there are some instances in which the injuries are considerable. For example, a person who is mauled by a dog might suffer from facial lacerations that lead to disfigurement. We know that having to live with the effects of a dog bite can be rather difficult.
In Florida, there is no reason why pet dogs should be allowed to bite a person. Dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets. The concept, which is known as strict liability, means that no negligence has to be proven if you were attacked by a dog.
When you are seeking compensation for a dog bite injury, you will have to show that your injuries were the direct result of the attack. This means that you will need to get medical records and other information to provide in your case. We can help you to get what you need while you work on following the plan your medical team has set for your healing process.
On top of the physical injuries, you might end up having to miss work or suffering from emotional trauma. We can take these into account when we are working on your case. We know that a dog attack case often involves very personal and sensitive information. We can help you to learn about what information is needed and how it will be used so that you can make informed decisions about what you want to do.
