Many people like dogs, but very few like being bit by one. If you are attacked and bit by a dog that is not your own, you may have a legal case that can be brought against the owner. While some people may get a bite and heal within a few days, others can suffer long-term and even lifelong issues, such as scars, broken bones, and mental trauma. It is also very possible to need to miss work while you recover, resulting in serious financial losses.
Even more upsetting than the actual bite is the fact that the whole thing could have been prevented if someone else were doing what they were legally supposed to. If your dog bite was the result of a property owner or dog owner not taking the proper steps to keep their dog restrained and you safe, reach out to the Longo Law Firm right away.
If this has happened to you, you don’t need to be told how upsetting it is to have your life turned upside down by just a moment. It’s best practice to call an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case. Your attorney will want to preserve all of the evidence. Every day that passes means crucial evidence gets weaker. Eye witnesses may forget exactly what happened, injuries may heal, and videotapes may be deleted or misplaced. The defendant may even move out of town to avoid being served with papers. In other words, don’t wait until several months have passed before you call the Longo Law Firm because the evidence may be destroyed. If you have been bit, reach out to us today at (954) 862-3608. If you prefer, you can also fill out our online form with a brief summary of your case.
