Have you even been approached by an angry animal, or an animal with large teeth? Even if you weren’t actually bitten, you probably felt the rush of adrenaline running through your veins, and it took a while for your heart to stop beating rapidly.
Unfortunately, recovering from an actual animal attack takes much longer. While dogs might be man’s best friend, they still have animal instincts, and when they feel threatened, they may attack. When this happens, the dog’s owner may be required to pay a monetary award to the victim according to Florida’s Dog Bite Law (§767.04, Florida Statutes). That’s why, if you or a loved one has been attacked or bitten by an animal, it’s a good idea to consult with an attorney to see what your possible options are as far as recovering compensation for medical bills, scarring, mental duress, etc.
After any wounds are tended to, take photos of all physical wounds inflicted by the animal. Get close-ups of all bite wounds and scratch marks, as well as a full body photo of the victim so that the injuries can been seen in relation to the location of his or her body. Also, take photos of any blood-soaked clothing, and any blood drippings left at the scene of the attack. (If you can safely get a photo of the animal, this isn’t a bad idea, either.)
Finally, you should contact an experienced dog bit or animal attack attorney such as those at Dean Burnetti Law. Dealing with the animal owner’s insurance company directly is not in your best interest. Remember, the insurance adjuster’s goal is to use any information you provide as a means to minimize your claim. An experienced attorney who is familiar with Florida’s Dog Bite Law knows how to seek everything you are entitled to receive.
