Even if you are uncertain of your legal rights, you should consult ROY & ASSOCIATES, P.A. immediately if you have been bitten by a dog. They will help you understand the possible damages you may be entitled to as a result of the dog bite.
Were you bitten on the dog owner’s property or on some other property? Florida statutes place “strict liability” on dog owner’s for injuries caused by dog bites. Don’t be embarrassed to call one of the lawyers at Roy & Associates, P.A. to advise you about your rights.
Dog owners should take every precaution to avoid anyone being injured by a bite from their dog, including training, fencing and leashing. Parents should teach their children not to approach strange dogs and to only pet a dog with the owners permission. If a dog is growling or avoiding you, do not approach it.
