The attorneys at Cohen Law Group Have succesfully handled many Dog bite cases throughout the state of florida. Dog owners, as well as domestic and exotic pet owners have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of the public with regards to the actions of their pets. This responsibility extends to situations inside the home, when the pet is let out into the yard, allowed to walk unleased, or other situations in which a victim may be harmed.
Even with the laws regarding pets and public safety, approximately 4.7 million individuals are attacked by dogs in America each year, requiring approximately 800,000 of those victims to seek medical treatment for their injuries.
There are many factors which may increase the likelihood that a dog may bite or attack, including, but not limited to:
• A dog that is not spayed or neutered is three times more likely to bite or attack;
• When the dog is chained up for extended periods of time or is the victim of mistreatment or abuse;
• When a dog is trained to aggressively protect the family or not trained to react well to visitors;
• Male dogs, especially between the ages of one and five, are more likely to bite than female dogs;
Injuries and effects of injuries sustained in a dog bite or animal attack may differ in the severity and conditions both physically and mentally. Medical problems, physical therapy, recovery periods and the short or long term effects of dog bites or animal attacks will also differ depending upon the type and severity of injuries.
