KISSIMMEE ANIMAL ATTACK LAWYERS
RECOVER DAMAGES AFTER A DOG OR ANIMAL ATTACK
Being attacked by an animal can be a traumatic and life-altering experience, especially if you suffered serious injury. Florida law holds animal owners responsible for such attacks, allowing injury victims to receive monetary compensation for their losses, including the emotional distress that such an event has likely caused.
If you or a loved one was injured by an animal, call the animal attack lawyers at Melendez Law Offices, P.A. to pursue compensation: .
WHO IS HELD RESPONSIBLE AFTER AN ANIMAL ATTACK?
Florida is a “strict liability” state, which means that an animal’s owner will be held liable for the attack, regardless of whether or not the owner knew that the animal could become violent and regardless of whether or not the animal has been violent in the past.
The only defenses the animal owner would have are that the victim was attacked while trespassing or that the victim was partially to blame for the attack due to having provoked the animal. In the latter case, the victim would still be eligible to receive compensation, but only a reduced amount based on the percentage of his or her own negligence.
