Hollywood Dog Bites

Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

Many Florida residents love their pets, but when dogs are not correctly trained and supervised they can easily attack and bite bystanders as well as visitors to a property. If you have been bitten in an animal attack or by a dog, you do have legal options. To find out more about what those legal options may be, contact Flaxman Law Group today for a free case evaluation. Flaxman Law Group attorneys are pet owners and understand the importance of responsible pet ownership. However, they also feel that pet owners who are negligent in providing for the safety for others should be held liable for their actions.

Do I Have a Dog Bite Case in Hollywood?

In Hollywood and across South Florida, dog owners are responsible for their pets. Unless the pet is acting in self-defense or in defense of an owner, dog owners can be held liable if their dog injures or harms someone. You may have a claim if:

  • You were visiting a property as part of your work and were bitten by job on the premises
  • You were invited on a property and were bitten by a dog on the premises
  • You were on public property – such as a sidewalk – and were attacked by a dog that was not properly secured or chained
  • You were bitten by a dog that has a history of violent attacks

In many cases, dog bite cases become a case of one person's word against another. A dog owner will sometimes claim that a victim provoked a dog or that the dog was defending the owner during an attack. In these cases, working with a personal injury attorney in Hollywood or your community is important. An attorney can carefully review the specifics of your case and can help get evidence from witnesses or others in order to build a strong case on your behalf.

How Much is my Case Worth?

Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be able to get compensation from the landlord where the dog resided or from the homeowner’s insurance policy where the dog attack took place. There may be multiple liable parties in your case as well, which can increase the chances that you will get fair compensation for your injuries. How much your case may be worth will depend on the severity of your injuries, the cost of damages, the history of the animal in question, and other details of the case. To find out how much compensation you may qualify for, contact a personal injury attorney to review your case.
