How Should You Handle a Dog Bite Injury?

Every so often, man's best friend can become the enemy. All it takes is one bite. If you've been the victim of a vicious dog attack, you may have serious injuries. Aside from the bite itself, if you fall during the attack it may make a serious situation even worse! Florida law holds dog-owners strictly liable for any injuries resulting from a dog bite attack, regardless of whether the owner knew the dog was dangerous, or was negligent in preventing the attack. It is important to know what to do after an attack to protect your legal rights. Personal Injury Attorney Gregory Smith of Oldham & Smith says: "Try to find out where the dog lives so you can identify the dog's owner. See a doctor right away and make sure your injuries are documented. Take notes of how your injuries affect your life, like time missed from work." Also- speak with an attorney, who can help you recover the compensation you deserve from the dog -owner's home insurance policy. Oldham & Smith offers trusted, strategic counsel to help clients seek the compensation they deserve. Let them help you move forward.
