When somebody commits a careless or malicious act that drastically reduces your quality of life, they should have to pay for it. That’s why tort law allows people to seek damages, which is a monetary award that’s paid to compensate for your loss.
There are nearly 90 million dogs in the U.S., and any dog can bite, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AMVA). Nationwide, 45% of homes have at least one dog, and more than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs every year. Children are the most common victims and the most likely to be seriously injured. Florida was one of the top ten states reporting dog bites in 2021. It is important to know what to do in case a dog attacks you or your child.
If you have been injured through the negligence or wrongdoing of another, your best chance of recovering the maximum compensation available is to have an experienced Florida Personal Injury Lawyer at Justin Morgan Law handle your claim. Some injury victims are reluctant to hire an attorney because they are concerned about the cost. When seeking legal representation for serious injuries, it is important to understand how Personal Injury Attorneys get paid. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay us no fees until we recover compensation for you.
