Fortunately, you are in the right place. Aigen Law Firm is on your side.
Florida is a Strict Liability State
When it comes to dog bite injury claims, Florida is a strict liability state. This means that, unlike other states, when a dog attacks a person, the victim does not need to prove that the dog had a propensity for violence. Essentially, as long as a dog attack victim can prove that they were attacked by a dog while either lawfully on private property or while on public property, they should have a valid dog bite injury claim.
The only case in which a person who was attacked by a dog on public property or while lawfully on private property may not have a claim is when the dog owner can prove that the person was either trespassing or provoked the attack in some way by antagonizing the dog. In this case, you may be ineligible to receive compensation.
Building Your Claim
As previously stated, to win a dog bite claim, you will have to prove that you were injured due to no fault of your own. Hiring a competent legal team can help you come up with the evidence you need to satisfy the burden of proof in your injury claim. Our firm can aid you in obtaining witness contact information, interviewing witnesses to see if they have any information about the dog’s history, obtaining veterinary records, and more.
We can also use pictures of your injuries, surveillance footage of the incident, medical documentation detailing the extent/cost of your injuries, and more to prove your personal injury claim. We are dedicated to obtaining a positive outcome on your behalf, and we are prepared to fight for the compensation you need, every step of the way. Don’t make the mistake of hiring just any attorney to fight for you, ensure you hire a competent Miami dog bite lawyer from Aigen Law Firm.
