Being attacked by an unattended husky or pit bull is an unexpected, unwanted, and shocking situation for anyone in St. Petersburg. This exact scenario happens every day in the United States, though. If you have been the victim of an animal injury, you need a dog bite injury attorney right away!
How Can a Dog Bite Injury Attorney Help You?
Florida Law takes pet ownership seriously. The law makes the owner of the animal liable for any bite injuries to another person. Your dog bite injury attorney in St. Petersburg will lean on the Florida Dog Bite Law Statute 767.04 to fight for you so that you can be compensated for any injuries you have sustained.
A dog can cause severe disfigurement, major scarring, and various degrees of permanent injuries. The medical treatments can weigh heavily on the victim of such an injury, and we can help you get compensation for:
- Medical treatment expenses
- Any lost wages resulting from the injury
- Pain and suffering
