While most canine companions really are man’s best friend, there are certain times where dogs can be quite dangerous. When abused, neglected, or scared dogs feel threatened they can seriously injure people. In fact, each year thousands of people are injured by dogs. When these attacks occur, it can mean tragedy, especially for young children or the elderly. If you or a member of your family has been injured by someone else’s dog, contact us at The Orlando Injury Law Firm right away. We can fight on your behalf to get the compensation you deserve for medical expenses and emotional trauma.
Most dog bites are entirely preventable and generally result because of the dog owner’s carelessness. There are several factors that contribute to the possibility of a dog bite including age and breed of the dog, a history of abuse and abandonment, unattended playtime with the dog and children, or people failing to contain their dog properly. It is always important to supervise children around dogs, and remain calm when strange dogs approach you. In order to prevent dog bites at home, you should socialize your dog from a young age and spay or neuter them as soon as possible.
If you or someone you love has suffered from a dog bite, don’t hesitate to call us at The Orlando Injury Law Firm. We would be happy to review your case and explain your rights.
