Dog Bites Liability Hollywood Florida Attorney

Dog Bites Liability Hollywood Florida Attorney. The Law Offices of David M. Cohen in Hollywood, Florida represent the plaintiff in dog bites and attack cases. If you have been been bitten or attacked by a dog, you should consult with a dog bite lawyer to determine if you are entitled to compensation to cover your medical bills and damages. Dog bites go much further than broken bones or scarring. The emotional trauma of a dog bite can last a lifetime.

Under Florida law, a dog’s owner can be liable if their dog bites a person who is in a public place or lawfully on the owner’s premises.  Florida operates under the theory of strict liability, which means that the owner can be held accountable for their dog’s actions regardless of intent or fault. In general, there is no need for the plaintiff to prove the damages were a result of the defendant’s negligence.

Dog bites can leave psychological damage that may require many months or even years of therapy to recover. If nerves are damaged as the result of a dog bite, the consequences can also be long lasting and expensive.
