The owner of a dog or other animal has a legal responsibility to prevent it from harming people. When the owner does not do so and a serious injury occurs as a result, the victim of the attack can claim compensation for financial losses and emotional suffering.
At Alvarez Barbara, LLP, we are experienced personal injury attorneys who represent victims of dog bite and other animal attacks. We work hard to help our clients obtain medical care, counseling services and compensation for their pain and emotional suffering.
If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog or other animal, we want to help you get the medical care and compensation you deserve. Contact us for a free consultation.
In Florida, a dog owner carries strict liability for all injuries caused by the dog. In addition to dog bites, these include injuries suffered from knockdowns by overly friendly dogs and injuries resulting from attempts to evade the animal.
