Dog Bite

Lyons, Snyder & Collin Assist Adults And Children If They Were Bitten By A Dog

If you or your child has been the victim of a dog bite, you may be entitled to receive compensation for the injuries suffered.

Dog Bite Cases Require Special Attention

Dog bite injuries - especially with children - can be very serious and often result in permanent scarring. The scarring is more than just a cosmetic problem. Often children who are bitten by dogs suffer significant emotional distress that often can result in long-lasting mental injury. The Destin dog bite attorneys at Lyons, Snyder & Collin ensure that the responsible party is held accountable for all injuries sustained, including all related mental health injuries that other law firms may neglect.

Does my family have a dog bite claim?

In Florida, there are several statutes or laws that impose strict liability upon dog owners for a bite that causes injury to a human being. Simply said, the owner of any dog that bites any person while such person is on or in a public place, or lawfully on or in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, is liable for damages suffered by persons bitten, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owners' knowledge of such viciousness. Additionally, it is important to note that there are specific Florida laws that apply to children who have been injured as a result of a dog bite.  If your child has been injured from a dog bite, it is important to immediately contact the Destin dog bite attorneys at Lyons, Snyder & Collin to discuss all aspects of the law to ensure maximum potential recovery.

We Assume The Financial Risk

Our dog bite practice, like other areas of our Destin personal injury practice, operates on a contingency fee basis, which means that you never have to pay any fee or cost until and unless we obtain a settlement and/or jury award at trial. Of course, if we are unsuccessful, you do not pay anything.
