External scars aren’t the only result of an animal attack. People may live in fear of that type of animal for the rest of their lives. Many suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder and require counseling to be able to walk past the neighbor’s house or visit a friend with an animal of the same kind or breed. If this has happened to you, you need a lawyer to help you fight for your best interests.
Our Attorneys help people who have been bitten by animals get the money they need to heal their scars, inside and out. I have handled cases involving bites from:
One of the main concerns in animal bite cases is whether or not the owner of the animal has an exclusion clause in his or her homeowner insurance policy. You need my help to conduct an asset valuation on the animal owner before you decide whether or not to sue.
I will review the circumstances of the attack and check with animal control to see if there have been previous incidents of this animal hurting others. I will interview witnesses, and I will help you find a doctor and/or therapist who can help you with your injuries. I put you and your interests first, and I will fight until you are happy with the results.
Real World Experience From A Local Perspective
I returned to central Florida to practice law after I had completed my studies because I wanted to help the people I care about most, the people I grew up with. Because I understand our community, I know the best ways to apply the law to a given situation.
Insurance companies always claim they will help when an accident happens, but they are really out to protect their own bottom lines. I will be your zealous advocate, working hard to get you the compensation you are entitled to.
When you go to your doctor, you expect to be taken care of and you expect that he or she will get it right the first time. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. Doctors make mistakes. When it affects your health and your life, it is unacceptable and needs to be remedied.
My name is Curtis P. Leonard, and I hold doctors who are negligent in their duties accountable, on behalf of the people whose lives have been permanently changed because of their mistakes. My first action as your attorney is to direct you to the best doctor to help reverse the damage that has been done. Next, I seek compensation to cover the present and future costs of the harm done to you.
I have handled medical malpractice cases involving:
- Incorrectly done surgeries
- Severed organs
- Incorrectly severed tissue
- Incorrectly severed muscles
- Sponges or tools left in the patient
- Misdiagnosis of disease
- Incorrect prescriptions
- Nursing medication errors
An Accomplished Local Trial Lawyer On Your Side
I returned to practice law in the area I grew up in when I graduated from law school because I want to help the people I care about the most. You and I will discuss the circumstances of your case.

We will work together to establish your goals, and I will fight for you until you are happy with the result.
The Villages Physician Negligence Attorney
Because Florida law dictates that prior medical malfeasance is part of the public record, I check the past history of every treating doctor involved in your case to see if any of them have had prior problems. I review your medical reports and consult with experts to determine where the standard of care was deviated from in your situation. I prepare your case to go to trial so the insurance company knows we are serious about seeking justice for you.
