Tampa Dog Bite Attorney Discusses Your Pet Being Injured by a Dog Attack
I was recently asked as a Tampa Dog Bite Attorney about what to do if your pet was injured by a dog attack and caused substantial medical bills. One of the things that’s important to remember in Florida is that animals are treated as personal property and are handled like a property damage claim.
For example, if you’ve got a Yorkshire Terrier that you paid a thousand dollars for, and as a result of a dog bite the dog needs extensive veterinary care, the vet bill amounts to $1500. A normal Tampa Dog Bite Attorney involved for the dog owner will argue that you are limited in your recovery to just the value of your dog. In this case they will argue a $1,000, even though the bills may greatly eclipse that. We are trying to change that.
