Dog Bite and Animal Bite Attorneys
Do You Need an Attorney for Dog Bite Injuries?
If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog or other animal belonging to another person, you may be entitled to compensation for your injury.
The process of gathering the appropriate information and establishing liability is very complex. The court system can be very exacting in cases regarding dog bites. After medical attention, the next most important advice needed is legal advice. You should seek advice from an experienced local attorney as soon after the bite as possible. In most cases, pet owners are responsible for ensuring that their animals do not cause injury to others. Depending on the circumstances surrounding a dog bite, an individual who is bitten may be entitled to receive damages from the dog's owner

Are Dog Owners Considered Liable When a Bite Occurs?
Typically, a dog owner is considered liable if they know their pet has a tendency to bite. Florida and the municipalities have very specific pet ownership statutes in place. We know each local court district and how they look at dog bite cases. We know the Florida State and local laws that apply to your case. We will help you determine if there is a violation and if the bite occurred because of the owner's negligence. Many times the owner’s insurance company or attorney will try to convince the court that the victim was at fault. The Lewis Law Group will define with you whether that is a real concern in your case or if that is strictly intimidation.
