Dog bites and other animal attacks can cause serious injury and often require extensive treatment and recovery. 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 persons bitten, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owners' knowledge of such viciousness.
If you have suffered an animal or dog bite injury, it is important to immediately speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer so that you can understand the extent of your injury and how to work toward compensation for your damages.
