It’s a fact, every year there are approximately 900,000 dog bites requiring medical attention and over four million dog bites ranging from minor nips to serious dog maulings resulting in serious bodily injury and even death. At least fifteen people die each year as a result of dog attacks in the United States. Unfortunately the majority of dog bite victims are children and in a majority of the cases the dog is owned by a family member or friend.
In Florida, dog bite law is strict liability which means an owner is responsible for his or her dog’s actions even if the dog has never bitten anyone before. However, the victim's own negligence can be considered to reduce or avoid a dog owner's liability. When a dog owner fails to exercise caution, he is acting negligently, placing the general public at great risk. Compensation for your injuries can include monetary damages for medical expenses, injuries, property damage, lost earning potential, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Based on his 28 years of experience, Alan knows the kind of experts to hire and the various types of compensation to seek. The best thing a person can do after being involved in a dog bite accident is to consult with a skilled injury attorney.
What sets Alan apart from other injury lawyers handling dog bite cases is his level of investigation. On every dog bite case Alan starts with the location of the attack and investigates the identity of the dog owner, obtains a history of the dog’s behavior and prior aggressive behavior. Each case requires detailed medical knowledge which Alan has acquired over his 28 years as a trial attorney.
No matter what the circumstances of your dog bite accident are, it is best to seek legal advice from an attorney who can evaluate your case and give you advice. Many dog bite accident lawsuits involve complexities that a board certified trial lawyer is best equipped to handle. Alan works diligently and investigates all aspects of a dog bite case.
Alan has handled numerous cases with most insurance companies and strives to obtain the compensation you deserve. Alan will vigorously pursue a client’s rights including taking the matter to trial and appeal if necessary. Alan does not just settle cases because he won’t take a case to trial.
