Dogs and other pets are great companions for may people and families throughout Florida, the United States, and across the world. However, every dog, cat, exotic bird, and other type of pet has it's own personality, it's own level of training by the pet owner, as well as it's own tolerances and triggers that may cause the pet to bite or attack.

In the United States, approximately 1/3rd of all homeowner's and renter's insurance claims are related to dog bites and animal attacks. When a person chooses to own a dog or other pet, they automatically assume liability for any injuries that their pet inflicts upon an "innocent victim". The reason we use the phrase "innocent victim" is because if the injured party intentionally incites the dog or other pet into a state that caused the pet to attack, the issue of liability may be successfully disputed by the pet owner.

For instance, if a dog is in it's own yard and on a chain, and the injured party taunted or excited the dog by yelling at the dog, throwing objects at the dog, ran back and forth along the fence-line in an effort to get the dog to chase them back and forth, or the injured party was trespassing, these actions may absolve the pet owner of liability for injuries sustained. On the other hand, if the same dog is in it's yard and a person is simply walking by the yard and the dog leaps up and bites over or through the fence, or jumps over the fence and attacks without intentional provocation by the injured party, the dog owner is liable for the attack.

This is just one scenario. There are many instances and circumstances where liability must be established in civil litigation cases involving dog bites and animal attacks. Attorney William Twyford aggressively provides professional legal services for dog bite and animal attack injury victim's, and in the even of loss of life, he represents the family of those who have lost their loved onee as a result of a dog bite and animal attack.
