Requiring Pensacola Dog Owners To Take Responsibility
Dogs are domesticated animals that can live side by side with human beings as pets. However, all types of dogs can be dangerous. A puncture wound from a dog bite can have serious medical consequences, including:
● Permanent scarring
● Permanent nerve damage
In the most extreme cases, the disfigurement caused by dog bites requires plastic surgery. If you’ve been injured in a dog bite incident, you will want to take pictures of the injury site as quickly as possible and contact an attorney to discuss your options. Furthermore, sometimes dogs cause injury without biting, such as causing a bicyclist to fall.
Analyzing Your Case To Determine Your Options: You Are Our Focus
Unfortunately, these days, more and more insurance companies are adding exclusions to homeowners’ policies for damage caused by animals. When such coverage is available, however, it covers dog bite injuries no matter whether they occur on the property.
Our Pensacola personal injury lawyers will carefully assess the insurance coverage that is available in your case so we can honestly advise you on your prospects for obtaining compensation for your injuries.
If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, don’t hesitate to contact us online to discuss what we can do to help you pursue fair money damages.
