Dog Bite Injuries

One of the joys of parenthood is seeing how your children interact with their surroundings. Many children love to play with dogs and other animals kept as pets. However, kids may not be able to recognize when a dog does not want to be bothered or is acting defensively — which could make them at risk for a dog bite injury.

If you or your child have suffered an animal bite or dog bite injury, it is important to immediately speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer in Lake County or Seminole County so that you can understand the extent of the injury and how to work toward compensation for your damages.

Florida law states that if a dog attacks any person while they are on or in a public place, including the property of the owner of the dog, the owner of that attacking dog is liable for damages suffered by the victim, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owners' knowledge of such viciousness.

Don't Let Your Pain And Suffering Go Unrecognized
