Orange County Woman Swerves To Miss A Cat Crashes Car Into House

By: Admin

A cat roaming loose ran out into the roadway causing a woman to swerve and lose control. She crashed into a neighbors house. Accidents like this can cause the owner of the animal to be responsible for all damages. Florida law places strict liability on owners of dogs and cats. This means that if your dog or cat causes an accident you could have to pay. This includes bites, scratches or any other way your pet caused the accident. If your dog runs into your neighbors ladder knocking him off and sending him to the hospital, you could be responsible to pay thousands of dollars to your neighbor. Some homeowners insurance policies will pay for the damages, but many won’t. Check your policy or call your agent to make sure your policy protects you and any damages that may be caused by your pet. If you have been injured by someone’s pet, we would be happy to speak with you and answer any questions you may have. We will also be happy to review your policy and tell you if you are protected should your pet hurt someone. Consultations are FREE. Wieland, Hilado & DeLattre, P.A. 407-841-7699


Mr Hilado is definitely on top of his game. I hired him for my Social Security Disability appeal and finally got my benefits awarded to me in two months. It is hard to find attorneys these days like him. He is very honest, and knowledgeable. I plan on referring him to friends and family.

On September 29, 2015, a serious auto crash changed our lives forever. Injuries sustained by my husband and I resulted in a long hospital stay and several subsequent surgeries. Two years later, we are both still dealing with injury related issues. Within a few days of the crash, we asked a relative about getting an attorney and they recommended Tom DeLattre (Wieland Hilado & DeLattre). Tom returned my husband’s call that same day and arranged to meet with us at the hospital. He explained the process and assured us that he would handle the auto insurance companies. He explained that our job was to work on our recovery. He was always available for questions and would return calls on weekends and while on vacation. We are very happy with the fair settlement that Tom DeLattre worked out with the insurance companies. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends or other family members.
