Todd Miner LawExcellentTodd Miner Law4.9 Based on 743 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onChristine CapassoChristine Capasso ★★★★★ Wow, this guy dropped what he was doing to take my call even though he knew he couldn't take my case! Todd spent 27 minutes on a call with me simply to give his professional advice (30+ years of experience as an accomplished attorney) handling insurance company's and personal injury cases to assist me with a situation where the "at fault" insurance company was strong arming me to sign a Property Damage Waiver. I so appreciate his time, advice and honesty in assisting me-he truly cares about people, especially when others are taking advantage of a situation. Attorneys usually get a bad rap but Todd Minor is a blessing! I recommend him to everyone who is looking for an attorney and wants to be treated fairly. He is passionate and will fight for what is right. Todd Minor is definitely a great advocate to have on your side. I thank you Todd, from the bottom of my heart.Jennifer BeckelJennifer Beckel ★★★★★ My son was injured while on a family vacation to Florida. Being from out of state, I didn't know where to start in searching for a personal injury attorney. After a few consultations that left me unimpressed and unconfident, I called Todd Minor Law and was connected with Mark Ahrens. I knew immediately after speaking with him that he would work hard to get a fair settlement. Working with Mark FAR exceeded my expectations. Not only is he extremely smart, talented and educated in law... he is a KIND human. He always took the time to explain things in a way that I would understand and was patient and thoughtful in all of his communication. In the end, he got us a settlement that we are extremely happy with. His hard work paid off. I can't say enough good things about my experience working with Mark. I am eternally thankful to him for everything he did for our family!Brandon IsonBrandon Ison ★★★★★ I was involved in an accident where I was rear-ended while waiting at a stop light.

If you're seeking a law firm that fights for you, even when the prospects of a good payout are slim, they definitely go above and beyond. They helped me immensely after my motorcycle crash. Thank you—I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.Response from the ownerTrestin - As I shared with you when we first spoke, I have been riding motorcycles since I was a young boy. I have also represented dozens if not hundreds of clients who have been injured in a motorcycle accident. Thank you for sharing your experience and kind words. - Todd Ron KingRon King ★★★★★ I was rear ended by an uninsured motorist and had some resulting neck and shoulder pain. I ended up having to be treated and was able to take care of the neck pain but the shoulder continued to give me trouble. As my PIP coverage was exhausted, I reached out to the Todd Miner Law office. I have been very happy with the service provided. From the first call (where Todd himself called me back) to the succesful conclusion everyone has been professional and helpful. In particular, Laurie Jay either has an amazing memory or a great note system on her computer. Because every time I called she was able to recall exactly what we had talked about the time before and just who I was and what I needed. She gave me great advice on navigating the Uninsured Motorist claim and we have been able to settle the claim in what I feel was fair to all parties. I hope I don’t ever have to use their service again but won’t hesitate to call them if needed.Response from the ownerI remember our initial call Ron. Thank you for sharing your positive experience in this review. I believe the time I spend personally speaking to clients helps our team create a custom path for success for each client. I am so grateful you trusted us with your case.- Todd Stacie HardyStacie Hardy ★★★★★ I was nervous to call a lawyer after our car accident but am so extremely thankful that I did. Todd Miner law was recommended to us and after an initial consultation, Trenton Swan was the lawyer assigned to our case. He did exactly what he said he would do and the timeframe was as expected. The unsung hero in the case was Trent’s paralegal Collette Cook. If I could give her a million stars, it still wouldn’t be enough. She answered every email and phone call almost immediately. She fought behind the scenes to make sure we received everything that we deserved. When our family had multiple serious medical issues as our case was wrapping up, she reached out to check on us because she actually cared. I never felt like a case number, or a burden, or a nuisance when I reached out multiple times in rapid succession. I can only imagine how many cases she is working at any given time, but Collette made me feel like I was the only one and I have no doubt that she makes every one of their clients feel the same way.We will always be grateful for Mr. Miner and Mr. Swan, but Collette will forever hold a special place in our hearts. If you find yourself in need of legal advice, please know that you will be in the very best hands with this most amazing team.Response from the ownerStacie - This is so wonderful to hear. Your personal experience is the experience we strive to provide to all of our clients. When you hired our firm you probably had high expectations. But you probably did not expect to connect with us on the level you did. This is just one of the many things that sets us apart from all the others. I’m so happy for you, and so proud of Collette, Trent, and my entire staff. I’m sure you will stay in touch. Thank you so much for trusting us to handle your case. - Todd Sandy BarneySandy Barney ★★★★★ Words aren't really enough to express the gratitude my father and I have towards Mark Ahrens. Mark was a blessing from beginning to end. From the first meeting we had with him, throughout the entire process, Mark was professional and caring. We are nothing but grateful. Thank you, Mark, for always being there for us, for holding my dad's hand, for your support, your kindness, your heart. You are one in a million.

Mark has it in his heart as do the others at our firm. We are truly unique. Thank you for sharing your experience. - Todd Chuck EvansChuck Evans ★★★★★ I cannot speak highly enough of Attorney Mark Ahrens.

    Frequently Asked Dog Bite Lawyer Questions

    orlando dog bite attack attorney

    Depending on the severity of your injuries, our dog bite attorneys can help you recover compensation for:

    • Physical therapy
    • Surgery
    • Scar revision
    • Medical care
    • Loss of wages
    • Loss of earning capacity
    • Pain and suffering damages

    A dog bite settlement depends on a number of different factors – mainly the extent of the economic damages (medical bills, lost wages etc.) and non-economic damages (pain and suffering).  If the attack left you with only minor injuries, be prepared to receive a smaller offer. This amount accounts for both the physical harm and the emotional agony and suffering.

    A lawsuit must be brought to a Florida court within four years of the date the plaintiff suffered harm from the dog.The statute of limitations in Florida is a strict time limit.

    If you get bitten by a dog, obtain the owner’s and any witness name/contact information. If you are unsure of the owner, animal control officials might be able to locate its owner. Dial 911 if your injuries are serious. It’s a good idea to document your injuries with photos after being bitten by an animal. Save copies of your bills and records of any hospital visits. Talking to a dog bite injury attorney can help you decide your next steps.

    Florida is a “strict liability” state, which means that even if the owner was not previously aware of the aggressive nature of the dog, they are held responsible for a dog bite. Due to Florida’s “strict responsibility” law, victims of dog attacks may not always need to demonstrate that the dog’s owner was careless in order to be awarded damages. Even if the dog attacks someone without being provoked, the owner is automatically responsible with very limited exceptions.

    Popular Dog Bite Injury Questions in Orlando

    Regardless if the dog has been aggressive in the past, the owner of a dog that bites any person is liable for the damages caused. This means that if a dog attacks you, the owner may be obligated to pay for your medical expenses and pain and suffering. Additionally, the laws in Florida do not require the victim to demonstrate that the owner’s negligence caused their injuries.

    The “One Free Bite” restriction does not apply in Florida. This is because Florida law holds the owner of a dog that attacks or bites a person fully accountable. This still applies even if the dog had never bitten anyone or displayed aggressive behavior in the past. There are limited exceptions, such as when a person provokes the dog into biting or if the owner has warning signs on their property. However in most cases, you can take legal action against the owner by contacting a dog bite injury attorney.

    Local animal services investigates any dog-related complaint that is made. These investigators interview the owner and any other parties involved. They may also conduct a property inspection. Depending on the seriousness of the incident and the possibility that the dog could attack again, the dog may be impounded. If the dog is taken, it will be kept under observation while the investigation is being conducted. The dog might be put to sleep if the attack-related injuries are serious.

    Dog bite claims are handled by a personal injury attorney. This is because car accidents, slip and fall incidents, and any other cases relating to injuries are handled by personal injury lawyers. Contact an Orlando Dog Bite Lawyer if you have any questions about this process.

    Dog attacks in Orlando & Central Florida, can cause many types of different injuries with levels of severity. Some dog bites can cause permanent scarring or tissue damage. Common dog bite injuries may include:

    • Scarring
    • Disfigurement
    • Tissue damage
    • Dismemberment
    • Puncture wounds
    • Broken bones

    • Eye injuries
    • Head and Neck Injuries
    • Face Injuries
    • Nerve Damage
    • Emotional Effects
    • Rabies & Other Diseases

     

    Regardless of the severity of your injuries, our reputable and compassionate law firm can help you present an injury claim against the dog owner’s insurance carrier.
