Delray Beach Dog Bite Attorney

LAW FIRM FOR Dog Bites

The law varies from state to state. Suffering a personal injury due to a dog bite can be complicated. In Florida, the reason that a dog bites or attacks does not matter. Even if the owner was not aware of the dog’s vicious propensities, the owner is still at fault. This notion is called “strict liability.” Basically, the owner of the dog is at fault for the dog bite no matter what the circumstances. According to Florida’s strict liability law, whether a dog bites because it feels threatened or because it was improperly restrained, it is the responsibility of the pet owner.

Dog BitesPotential Damages

Some dog bites are minor, but others can leave the victim with thousands of dollars in hospital bills due to stitches and doctor visits. The dog bite/attack can even cause a significant amount of emotional trauma that most people do not expect. Dogs can be very powerful, especially depending on the size and breed. Unfortunately, statistics show that children under the age of ten are the most at-risk to dog bites because of their curious and playful behavior. The law also protects the destruction of private property due to dog bites or dog attacks.
