Naples Dog Bites

Naples is a dog owner’s dream, with its beautiful sunny weather and dog-friendly parks and beaches, including the popular Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park. Unfortunately, not all pet owners are eager to follow the laws for pet owners established by Collier County, and some dog owners may let their dogs run at large or chase after people. This puts other people and their pets at risk, and can lead to a dangerous dog attack.

Florida has strict regulations governing dog bites, and if you or a loved one has been injured, it is important to hire an attorney who is well-versed in these laws. At Morgan & Morgan, the attorneys in our Naples office have years of experience negotiating and litigating dog bite claims, successfully recovering compensation against negligent dog owners.

We understand how to deal with any intricacies of the Florida dog bite law that may limit our clients' chances of recovery so that they obtain the compensation needed to cover medical bills, lost wages and other losses. This provides us with a distinct advantage over other personal injury law firms that are not familiar with dog bite cases.

Collier County Leash Law

In Naples and Collier County as a whole, the animal ordinance dictates that all dogs must be confined to their owner’s property or walked on a leash. Dogs cannot run at large, chase after bicycles, vehicles, or people, or bark excessively in a way that creates a nuisance.

Why Should I Hire a Naples Dog Bite Attorney?

In Florida, the claims process for recovering compensation for damages inflicted by a dog bite is generally straightforward; however, depending on the details of your claim, certain complications may arise. It is important that you hire a Naples dog bite attorney with experience successfully navigating these types of cases. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling dog bite cases and, in handling your claim, will investigate the incident by evaluating:

  • Your involvement in the event;
  • The dog’s behavior and previous history of attacks;
  • The location of the attack;
  • If any warning signs were posted;
  • The owner’s compliance with the law.

Your attorney’s investigation can help to reduce the impact of any allegations suggesting you were partly at fault for the bite and resulting injury. The attorneys in our Naples office are proficient and thorough investigators and have a history of building successful claims on behalf of their clients.

Liability

Liability is not strictly limited to the dog’s owner. If a landlord has knowledge that a tenant has a dog on the premises, they may also be liable for the dog’s actions. If they are aware of a dangerous dog on the premises, they owe other tenants a duty of care to protect them from harm.

What Can I Recover After a Dog Bite Attack?

If you have been injured by a dog bite, you may be entitled to recover compensation for present and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, veterinary bills, and property damage.
