St. Petersburg Dog Bites

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 St. Petersburg office have years of experience negotiating and litigating dog bite claims, successfully recovering compensation on behalf of their clients.

The city of St. Petersburg does not tolerate “vicious” dogs, and it is unlawful to own or keep a dog that poses a threat to humans or other animals, according to the city ordinance. If you are ever attacked by a dog, we understand how to deal with any intricacies of the Florida dog bite law that may limit our client's' chances of recovery so that they obtain the compensation needed to cover medical bills, lost wages and other losses.

Why Should I Hire a St. Petersburg 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 St. Petersburg 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 St. Petersburg 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.
