Dog Bite

Find out what your case is worth.

The insurance companies may not be telling you everything. Know what you’re entitled to with a free consultation. Rest assured that we will never charge any fees unless we win.

Premises liability refers to the responsibility that property owners have to keep their land safe for visitors, guests, and customers. This includes removing various obstacles that could cause fall accidents, and it includes providing reasonable warning of any dangerous animals or obstacles on the property. When reasonable warning is not provided, serious accidents can occur. A dog bite or attack that results in a lack of reasonable warning could warrant a personal injury lawsuit against the property owner.

If you or your child has been injured by a dog attack then the property owner whose property you were a guest upon may be held liable for the injuries you have sustained. Further, they may be responsible to compensate you for any financial hardships that have resulted from this attack. If you have been attacked by a dog, the first thing you must do is to seek medical attention. There are diseases that can be easily transferred and a hospital trip will help to prevent this. In addition, your wounds will be officially recorded and documented; this may help in your case in the future.

Owners are generally responsible for attacks by their animals in Tampa, including dog bites. Still, obtaining compensation for those injuries can present enormous challenges.

Tampa Dog Bite FAQs

What injuries are Common from Dog Bites?

Dogs have powerful jaws and sharp teeth, and when they bite, victims might suffer:

  • Lacerations
  • Puncture wounds
  • Torn soft tissue
  • Fractures
  • Facial injuries

Severe dog bites can leave victims with scarring for a lifetime, which can have emotional effects. Dog bite injuries might be more serious than you initially think, so it is wise to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. A medical professional needs to clean your wound for proper infection prevention.

Who Pays for Your Losses?

If a dog owner has homeowner’s insurance, this policy should cover your dog bite losses. You need to file the right claims and negotiate with the insurance company, and this is something you should leave to a skilled dog bite attorney.
