Tampa Dog Bite Attorney Discusses If the Owner of the Dog Does Not Have Insurance
Sometimes when individuals come in to our office and we investigate a dog bite claim, we find out that the owner does not have any insurance, and oftentimes a decision is made after an investigation of that individual’s assets. This isn’t practical, and it’s not cost effective to prosecute a claim for a dog bite. In that case we advise the client that they really do not have a claim that’s cost effective to pursue, in other words it would cost more money to pursue the claim than that individual can ever hope to recover in Florida. The state has through statute allowed protection for particularly homeowners in terms of homestead exemptions, but that’s something that needs to be carefully investigated after a dog bite.
