Strict Liability For Dog Bites In The Orlando Area
Florida imposes strict liability on dog owners for the behavior of their pets. If you’ve been bitten by a dog in the Orlando area, you don’t have to prove that the owner was negligent in supervising the dog or that the dog had a prior history of viciousness. If you are in a public area or lawfully on private property, the fact that the dog bit you is generally enough to make the owner liable. Our personal injury attorneys can effectively manage your claim to compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Financial losses, such as lost earnings, directly attributable to your injury
- Pain and suffering
Help With Exotic Animal Attacks
The Orlando area is home to theme parks that feature exotic animals. In fact, exotic animal ownership is popular throughout the state of Florida. While there’s much that’s positive about the protection private ownership gives to a wide variety of species, there are dangers to treating wild animals as pets. After all, dogs have been domesticated for thousands of years. They’re bred to be safe around people, and yet even they occasionally attack. How much more dangerous are species that haven’t been bred as pets? Payas, Payas & Payas, LLP is ready and able to represent clients who’ve been attacked by exotic pets, including alligators, chimpanzees, big cats, monkeys, macaws and a host of other species.
