The types of injuries these animals can inflict are horrific. Pit bulls, in particular, can lock its jaw shut like an alligator resulting in severe tissue loss, broken bones, disfigurement, nerve damage and amputation, to name just a few of the injuries.
If the owner of the dog owns a home, chances are homeowners insurance that covers the owner for dog bites inflicted by the owner's dog. Your Florida attorney needs to obtain this information immediately and determine the extent of the insured's policy limits, information which the insured and his/her company rarely divulge. Your attorney knows how to obtain this information despite their obstructive tactics, thereby setting the case up for where it needs to go.
Many dog owners have insufficient coverage to compensate severely injured dog bite victims. It is therefore essential that your attorney immediately do an asset check on the dog owner to see if he/she has assets more than the insurance policy to compensate the dog bite victim adequately and to ensure that the dog owner does not start hiding assets. If that happens, your attorney needs to immediately file the appropriate motions to freeze assets and assert fraudulent transfers of the defendant's property.
Compensation should be awarded for that as well. If you or your child is ever the unfortunate victim of a dog bite attack, it is essential that you obtain quality legal assistance as soon as you are physically able to do so to preserve your right to adequate and fair compensation for these injuries through The Law Offices Of Keith Bregoffh, personal injury law firm in Fort Pierce.
