Cape Coral, FL asked in Animal / Dog Law for Florida

Q: My dog bit a delivery driver on his hand and scratched his chest almost 2 years ago.

I just received a letter from his lawyer wanting my insurance information and if I don’t provide it then it is prejudice. EMS and police arrived on scene and he did not need medical attention. I provided him with my information and to let me know of any medical bills- he has not. Do I need a lawyer for this?

A: Although not necessarily required, it’s probably in your best interest to hire a lawyer to handle this if you do not have dog bite coverage under your insurance. If you have dog bite coverage, then contact your insurance and they will handle it for you.
