Training dogs does not entirely eliminate their risk to society. Dog owners need to take responsibility for their dogs and ensure that other people are safe around them. Dog bites and attacks can cause serious harm, including infections. If you have been bitten by someone else’s dog, you have the right to claim compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. The lawsuit can succeed if it is proven that the victim did not provoke the dog in any way. This can be quite difficult to prove, which is why you need an experienced attorney to represent you.
At Miami Legal Firm, we have a seasoned attorney who is experienced in cases of dog bites and attacks. Our attorney will ensure that you get fair compensation, including damages for medical bills, any trauma suffered, loss of physical abilities and emotional distress.
Various professionals are exposed to such risks on a daily basis, including couriers, delivery persons, mail carriers and other employees who have to visit homes as part of their job. A worker who is legally entitled to enter the premises of another citizen can fall victim to untrained dogs. If you encounter such a scenario, contact our attorney to explore your options for filing a suitable personal injury claim.
In most cases, the dog owner can be held responsible for a bite/attack, regardless of whether the dog became vicious due to an underlying medical condition.
