Children are commonly the victims of animal attacks throughout Florida and the rest of the United States. Almost one half of all dog bite victims are under the age of 12, and it is estimated that approximately 4.5 million people are the victims of dog attacks each year. Although most dogs and family pets are gentle and calm, they are still animals and may attack without warning.
Have you been a victim of an animal attack? Has your child or a loved one been bitten by a dog or other animal? If so, you can take action to help ensure that you receive monetary compensation for your injuries and emotional pain and suffering.
I am personal injury attorney Justin Caldarone of The Caldarone Law Group, and I help victims of dog bites and animal attacks. By helping you file a claim with the insurance company of the animal owner, I can give you a better opportunity of receiving a successful outcome for your claim. If the insurance company denies or delays your claim, I can determine whether bringing a lawsuit is the best option for your claim.
Damaging Effects Of Animal Bites
A dog bite or other animal attack is a frightening experience. You may have been minding your own business and suddenly were attacked by an angry or frightened animal. The bite itself can also lead to infection and permanent scarring. You can still file a claim to receive compensation for your injuries and emotional pain and suffering even if a friend of yours owns the dog.
As your personal injury lawyer, I can negotiate with the insurance company to help you receive compensation for medical expenses, continued medical care, if necessary, psychological counseling costs, lost earnings as a result of the injury, damaged property, and emotional pain and suffering.
