If an insurance company contacts you, do not answer any questions or sign any documents until you have spoken to an attorney. It is important for you to come to the table fully informed of your rights.

Selecting a Dog Bite Lawyer

In Florida, the law imposes strict liability upon dog owners if their dog attacks and injures another person. The dog’s owner will be liable for the injuries caused by the dog, even if the dog has no history of aggression.

However, under Florida law, there are some defenses available to dog owners. Because the legal issues involved in dog bite cases are complex, it is important to choose a lawyer who has experience investigating and resolving these issues.
