Melbourne Dog Bites

Dogs aren’t the only animal that bite in Melbourne, but they can be one of the more common attacking animals. Owning a dog is a serious responsibility, but unfortunately, not all pet owners take that duty seriously. As a result, some dogs are poorly trained or supervised and prone to attack.

If you or a loved one is the victim of a dog bite, it’s important to contact our Melbourne lawyers to discuss and understand your legal options. They can help you seek compensation for the injuries you may have experienced. Fill out our free, no-risk case evaluation form to learn more today.

  • Florida’s Dog Bite Law

    Florida is one of many states that imposes a “dog bite law” on dog owners, increasing their responsibility in the event of a bite. This means owners face more liability than they generally would, under the theory that owning a dog is cause enough to accept liability for the injuries they cause. Florida’s dog bite law stipulates that dog owners are liable whenever their dog attacks a person on public property, though the victim’s careless conduct may reduce that liability.

    The same usually remains true when the attack is on private property, as long as the victim is lawfully present. This means people who are invited to the property, as well as postal workers, police officers, and other government agents. Prominently posted warning signs can reduce liability, but this isn’t a surefire method of protection.

  • How a Melbourne Lawyer Can Help

    Florida’s dog bite laws are very victim-friendly, but it is not always easy to get compensation. First, the extent of a victim’s damages are at issue, in addition to the ultimate value of the harm caused. Dog owners and their insurers will try everything to minimize a dog attack victim’s losses, including using highly-paid experts to decry the severity of scars and disfigurement. That’s why you need a skilled dog bite lawyer at your side.
