Know Your Rights if Injured by an Animal
Dogs are often untrained and their owners frequently irresponsible. In addition, when answering the door, dogs can become extremely aggressive. Untrained animals can escape their leashes in public, or even attack when least expected. Whatever the circumstance, you deserve help from an experienced South Florida dog bite lawyer. No matter where the dog bite attack occurred, we can help. In addition, Florida law holds dog owners responsible and accountable. The accountability depends on the specifics of the attack. For example, if a homeowner’s insurance policy covers dog attacks, the dog owner may already have representation provided by the insurance company. You need to ensure you have your legal team assembled, as well, to represent your best interests to review your legal options.
