The Law Offices of Henry Gare has handled hundreds of cases involving all breeds including Pit Bull attacks, Rottweiler attacks, German Shepherd and Chow dog bites in Jacksonville.
It is not necessary for a victim in Florida to prove that the dog was known to be vicious or had a propensity to bite. All that must be proved is that a defendant owned a dog. That the dog bit the victim and that the victim was lawfully where they should have been.
The most important aspect in dealing with a dog attack or bite is to gather as much evidence as possible. This includes identifying the dog’s owners, taking a photograph of the dog, writing down any eyewitness names and phone numbers, and immediately calling the police and Animal Control.
