What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Animal Attack Injuries

For whatever reason, Florida residents seem to be attracted to all manner of pets and exotic animals. They make a colorful addition to a landscape that already includes massive natural predators in the form of alligators and crocodiles.

An unintended byproduct of this combination of semi-domesticated wildlife and the human population is that there is a perpetual risk that an individual might become the victim of an animal attack if the owner of a creature fails to ensure that his or her pet is adequately restrained. These beasts may be instinctually predisposed to aggression and are equipped with the means to inflict serious harm.

If you have been the victim of an unprovoked animal attack then it may be in your best interest to pursue a civil lawsuit. A successful legal action can gain you financial compensation for a variety of damages sustained as a consequence of the animal attack. Contact Jackson personal injury lawyer Don Guthrie, P.A., at 904-296-1088 to determine whether filing suit may be appropriate in your case.

Potential Injuries

Whether they involve pets or wild animals, animal attacks are always dangerous. Potential injuries that victims may experience include:

  • Severe lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Puncture wounds
  • Severe infections
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Fractured bones
  • Nerve damage
  • Disfiguring scars

Though some exotic birds, snakes, and other animals may be considered to be somewhat domesticated, they have not lost the talons and teeth that they have relied upon in the past and are therefore still very dangerous. Pet owners are legally liable for the actions of their animals, including unprovoked attacks.
