Victim of a Dog? Get An Aggressive Advocate On Your Side

Dog Bite Attorney in Bartow, Florida

Protecting the Victims of Animal Attacks in Polk County

The companionship of a domestic dog—or any pet—is an experience that many families enjoy throughout the country. While very loving and comforting to the family, many of these pets see their role as the protector of the family and what it perceives to be their territory. It is also important to understand that every type of dog still has instincts which have been a part of their DNA from the inception of their breed.

Therefore, dog owners, as well as owners of any other domestic or exotic pets, have a legal responsibility to ensure that their animal does not endanger the safety of the public through their actions. This even extends to situations outside of the owners home—for example, when the pet is allowed to roam free in the backyard, when the pet is being taken on a walk, or even when the pet is let loose in a public space.

Unfortunately, not all pet owners take this responsibility to heart. In fact, a 2008 study by the Insurance Journal reported that dog bite claims accounted for one third of all homeowner’s insurance claims.
