While in most cases we view dog as man’s best friend, a dangerous dog can be anything but. At the Tripp Law Firm we handle cases involving dog bites and animal attacks that have caused serious and devastating injuries to both adults and children.
Although animal-attack claims most commonly involve dog bites, many other types of domesticated animals, such as ferrets, cats, and even birds, can also bite humans. Even non-domesticated animals, such as large cats ordinarily found in the wild, but owned by some people as pets have been known to attack children and adults. An owner’s liability for injuries caused by his or her pet, if any, will vary greatly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. A lawyer from our firm who is experienced in handling personal injury claims is an excellent source for accurate advice and information if you or a loved one has been injured in animal attack.
Our firm is able to handle animal attack injury cases involving dogs, venomous spiders, snakes, and other dangerous animals. If you or your child has suffered an animal bite or attack, contact our West Central Florida, law firm today. We handle all animal accident and personal injury claims on a contingency basis–we do not take any payment for attorney’s fees or costs until we obtain a settlement or verdict for you.
Most municipalities in Florida have leash laws, requiring owners to keep their animals out of the public at large. A dog is presumed to be domesticated unless it is proven otherwise. If a dog is not locked up, however, and it attacks or bites someone, the owner becomes strictly liable for any injury the dog causes. Chows, Dobermans, Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, and Akitas can all be extremely dangerous animals and cause severe and lasting injury, scarring, disfigurement, and even death.
We work with our own private investigators, perform in-depth investigations, carefully research applicable law, and exhaust every opportunity for advocacy in pursuit of a fair outcome for our clients. If it is not possible to reach a settlement on your behalf, we will aggressively advocate for you in litigation.
The entire Injury Law Team at the Tripp Law Firm is committed to providing our clients with the compassionate care, attention, and service they deserve for their comprehensive recovery needs. At the same time, we advocate aggressively on their behalf.
