Dog Bites Injuries – Personal Injury Lawyers in Orlando, Florida

If you or someone you know have been bitten by a dog, compensation for the bite may be acquired. the owner is liable for the damages incurred by the dog bite. There are a number of factors that may determine the liabilities of the owner, and this means if a dog has been shown to be dangerous. There is a concept known as the “one bite rule,” although that is a misnomer, as the dog may not have bitten anyone to be considered dangerous. Some signs of aggression are:

  • Growling / snapping at people
  • Jumping on people (this includes non-aggressive)
  • Frightening people who pass by
  • Specific breed classified as dangerous
  • Dog is trained to fight

In other jurisdictions, a simple showing that the dog caused someone’s injuries is enough to impose strict liability on the dog’s owner. Common negligence theories may also be used to hold a dog owner liable for a dog bite victim’s damages. if the owner is held liable, the victim may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
