Brevard County Dog Bite Lawyer

Can the owner be held legally responsible for a dog bite?

In many states, the victim of a dog attack can only file a personal injury claim against the animal's owner if it can be proven that the owner had previous knowledge-also referred to as scienter-of the dog's vicious or aggressive tendencies. Fortunately for you, if you or your child has been bitten in Brevard County or anywhere else in Florida, you have a right to sue the dog owner under the principle of strict liability, without the necessity of proving that the owner was negligent.

A personal injury attorney from High Stack Gordon Kirby can represent you in legal action to recover monetary damages from the dog owner or the owner's insurance policy, and we are ready to begin working on your case today. Let our reputation for results and our track record including $100 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients work for you! We will stand by you as the case progresses, doing everything we can to help you find a way through this difficult experience.

Claiming Compensation for Dog Bite Victims in Brevard County

Our Brevard County injury lawyers will fully explore all your legal options and will help you pursue financial compensation from all available sources. Beyond filing a claim against the dog's owner, you may be able to file a premises liability claim against the owner of the property where the attack occurred, as landlords have a legal responsibility to safeguard tenants against such hazards.

A crucial element in proving your claim centers on the legal concept of "comparative fault." According to Florida Statutes §767.04 (2011), the value of your settlement may be reduced in proportion to the degree to which you are demonstrated as being at fault for the bite, such as for provoking the attack. We will work to defend you against such allegations and will fight to help you receive the full compensation you deserve. Be sure to get in contact with our Brevard County office today and take advantage of our free case evaluation.
