Compensation For Dog Bite Injuries

A dog bite or any other animal attack can leave you or a loved one with serious, and sometimes, permanent injuries. The immediate physical injury requires medical attention. The long-term effects of a dog bite may take the form of emotional scars, which may require a longer recovery time. A fear of dogs may be permanent, which is particularly tragic when a child is attacked.

At Brannon & Brannon, we navigate you through a legal process that is complex and emotionally charged. Our father-son partner lawyers combine more than 45 years of experience pursuing maximum compensation for victims of dog bites and other personal injury and premises liability claims.

A Legal Team Combining Experience And Legal Knowledge With A Commitment To Community

Florida law states dog owners are accountable for their animal biting another person in a public place or while lawfully on the owner’s premises. Even if their best efforts failed to restrain the dog, that does not take away their responsibility for properly restraining the animal. Failing to control the animal could lead to legal action. In many cases, the owner of the dog will be held strictly liable for your personal loss, injury and damages.

Florida law also has a dangerous dog statute, mandating that certain dogs, which have been designated as dangerous, must be registered and kept in a secured area with warning signs. Again, an owner falling short of their duties could face serious consequences in the form of compensating victims for physical and psychological injuries as well as pain and suffering.
