Dog Bite Injury Attorneys

Many Central Florida residents enjoy the company of their beloved dogs, but injuries sustained by a dog bite can not only have severe consequences for the victim, but for the owner of the dog as well. Our dog bite attorneys in Orlando at Bogin, Munns and Munns understand the unfortunate effects that a dog bite injury can have on an individual, which is why we offer our expertise and guidance to ensure that you receive the compensation your deserve.

Our dog bite lawyers in Orlando can legally represent you in the court of law and can help determine if damages caused by the dog were due to the negligence of the owner. Victims are entitled to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other possible damages that can result in pain, suffering, emotional trauma, scarring and more. In most dog bite cases, the owner of the dog is responsible for injuries caused. The owner is responsible if they are aware that their dog is likely to attack, and can be found responsible for negligence in an unprovoked attack. Although only a fraction of dog bites are fatal, the everlasting consequences of an attack can cause physical and emotional anguish.

Dog bites can be preventable, and understanding appropriate measures can reduce and potentially prevent the likelihood of an attack:

  • Keep your distance from unfamiliar dogs; some dogs may appear friendly until you approach them

  • If a dog is close enough to investigate, avoid petting it and allow it to approach slowly. They may bite in self defense if they are skittish and not expecting to be touched

  • Avoid touching a dog when they are sleeping or eating. They may become startled or defensive and may bite

  • Avoid making eye contact with a dog; it can be seen as a challenge

  • Stay away from stray dogs and report them

  • Avoid running from an aggressive dog; their instincts can kick in and view you as prey

  • If you’ve been bitten, clean the wound and report the attack to your local animal care and control agency

  • If you’ve fallen, curl up into a ball and don’t move
