If you, your child or other loved one has been attacked by a dog or other animal in the state of Florida, make sure you speak to an attorney who is familiar with state laws. Florida is a strict liability state which means the dog owner is legally responsible for the injuries resulting from a dog attack. While you recover from the physical and emotional stress of this attack, you shouldn’t have to worry about lost wages or covering your medical bills.
But those aren’t the only damages you may be entitled to recover. You may also be able to recover medical bills and damages for pain, mental anxiety, and permanent scarring, as well as inconvenience and loss of enjoyment of life. As Beltz & Beltz, our attorneys have successfully represented numerous persons who have been bitten or attacked by dogs.
