DOG BITES – FORT LAUDERDALE / MIAMI
Each year millions of Americans are victim to dog bites or dog attacks. If you or a loved one has suffered from a bite related incident and the dog owner is deemed to be in fact negligent, you have the legal right to compensation from the canine owner’s insurance.
Dog bites cause costly hospital trips and in some instances time missed from work. People who have suffered from a dog bite sometimes also can experience a permanent scarring or disfigurement not to mention extensive trauma. As a victim of a Dog Bite or Dog Attack you deserve to be fully compensated for all damages so you are “made whole” after an instance of attack.
DOG BITE LAWS & COMPENSATION
Dog bite victims must prove without a doubt that they are 100% entitled to compensation for their bite injuries. There are several legal routes you can take to prove that the canine’s owner should be held accountable to cover your losses. In some states, canine owners are held liable for all bites that a victim suffers on public property or when lawfully on a private piece of property.
In some cases, dogs that exhibit an aggressive type of behavior, should serve as a warning sign to the owner that the dog has a likeliness to strike out or to bite. If the owner had known of the potential danger and not taken the proper steps to protect you, then you may make a claim based on the owner’s negligence in avoiding injury. A dangerous dog is held with the same consideration as a loaded gun, especially if the canine is allowed to run free. The owner who unleashed this dog (weapon) most likely is to be held accountable.
