  • How to Prove Negligence in a Deland Dog Bite Case

    Proving negligence means showing the dog owner’s actions resulted in your injury. You must prove the dog’s owner has a reasonable duty of care to protect you and others from harm. You will also need to show that the animal’s owner didn’t take reasonable steps to prevent harm and that these actions resulted in your injury.

    Some of the steps you may need to take to prove negligence can include,

    1. Locate the dog’s owner. Finding the owner of the animal can be difficult. Not all dogs have I.D. tags, especially when they’re running loose. If the dog is microchipped, it’s a little easier. The microchip will display the owner’s name, address, and contact number. The responding police officer may be able to access the chip information. If not, the vet will scan for a microchip when the dog is dropped off at the clinic or animal shelter. Once you locate the dog’s owner, you can start building a negligence case against them. You’ll need the owner’s name for your personal injury suit. You can’t file a claim against the animal or an unknown individual.
    2. As mentioned earlier, you must prove negligence in a personal injury case. This means proving that the dog’s owner knew the animal could be potentially dangerous and did not take steps to prevent your injury. For example, if you entered the individual’s yard or home without permission, you probably do not have grounds to file a personal injury claim. The dog’s owner may even be able to file a complaint against you for unlawful entry. If you’re invited to the property, you have a reasonable expectation of safety. If you’re bitten by the property owner’s dog, you can show the owner did not take appropriate steps to ensure your safety. The same also applies if the dog is allowed to run loose. The owner is not ensuring others in the area are safe from harm.

    The process can be complex, which is why it’s best to work with an experienced attorney from Morgan & Morgan. We have an extensive nationwide network of attorneys, and some are located in the Deland area. Contact Morgan & Morgan to learn more about your legal rights and options.
