Dog Bite Injury
Fort Lauderdale Dog Bite Injury Attorney
Sure, dogs are “man’s best friend” but sometimes Fido can hurt someone whether intentionally or not. If you or someone you know was attacked, tripped, or otherwise injured due to another person’s pet, farm animal, or horse, it is in your best interest to see an attorney who can make sure you receive the medical care you need and the compensation you are legally owed.
Statistics have shown that there are roughly 5 million dog bites alone in the United States, with 800,000 requiring medical care. Of that number, approximately 30 cases turn out to be fatal with Florida recently ranking 5th in the entire country for the number of dog bite fatalities. And these statistics are only accounting for dog bites, with thousands of other animal related injuries also taking place yearly.
Thomas & Pearl is relentless and will fight for you.
It is important to know that dog bites, and animal related injury cases in general, are different from any other type of injury and the laws that govern them are different too. That means the attorney you hire should be someone with a specific knowledge of animal bites and related injuries who understands how to achieve the best results for clients with the specific laws in place for victims of these injuries.
If you or a family member were injured by another person’s animal, your first step should obviously be getting the immediate medical care you need. Your second step should be a call to Thomas & Pearl. Immediately after making that call, we will invite you come in for your FREE consultation.
