        Question:

        What should I do after a dog bite?

        Answer:

        If you’re the victim of a dog bite attack here in Florida, obviously the first thing you need to do is get medical attention. If you can, dial 911 right away. Dog bites are severe, and they can be fatal. Unfortunately, we’ve had one too many clients whose lives have been devastated due to a dog attack. There are certain things that can be done right away to help your case along obviously. As much information as you can gather by way of photographs and video is extremely helpful to your case. A lot of times, people who are the victims of dog bites never get the photograph of the dog, the surrounding circumstances. Maybe that dog got out of a yard. Maybe there was a fence that was open at the particular time. Where did that dog come from? Did it have a leash on it? Did it have a collar? There’s a lot of investigation that goes on into building up a dog bite claim.

        Now, the attorneys here at the Victory law firm are extremely experienced in this so it’s critically important that you hire an attorney who knows what they’re talking about when it comes to these types of cases. For example, different jurisdictions have different rules on dog bite cases, from Miami Dade County to Broward County to Hillsborough County, Orange County, there’s different rules in place. For example, here in Orange County, a dog must be on a leash if it’s not contained within the home at all times. Now, that can vary from county to county. Miami Dade County has flat out bans on certain breeds of dogs. Counties might have different restrictions based on the breed of dog, from Rottweilers to Pitbulls, Dobermans, Chows, Akitas, there’s a lot of very specific information that an experienced attorney in dog bite cases will know and will bring to bear to bring out the value of your case. If you are the victim of a dog bite case, first thing you need to do, get medical attention right away, no matter the severity of your injury. The second thing is to call the Victory law firm.
        Sometimes clients call and tell us they were injured in an accident due to somebody else’s fault; either they forgot, they were in a hurry, or some people are just opposed to it still. What we tell those clients is you are able to receive compensation for injuries sustained in that car accident as long as the seat belt would not have prevented them. For example, if you’re struck from the side and you break your arm against the door, you have a valid claim for that injury. However, if by wearing a seat belt you would not have struck your head on the steering wheel, for example, then you are not protected. It’s called the seat belt defense. What would happen is, although we would claim all of the injuries that were caused by the accident, the defendants are allowed to assert as a defense that because you weren’t wearing a seat belt those injuries should be either precluded or diminished because of your failure to wear that device.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
