Fort Lauderdale Dog Bite Attorney
Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Attorneys Hold Pet Owners Responsible
Personal injury claims can be filed against a negligent pet owner if their animal attacked
or bit an innocent individual because of the owner's negligence. Dog
bites are the most common animal-related injuries since dogs can be very
territorial and often get loose when their owners fail to properly restrain
them. If you have been attacked by a dog, it is very likely that you have
suffered emotional trauma as well as physical injury. A Fort Lauderdale
personal injury lawyer from the law firm of Rosenberg & Rosenberg,
P.A. can help you file a claim and hold the pet owner responsible for
all such damages.
Types of Dog Bite Injuries
When people think of dog bites, the first thing that might come to mind
is rabies. Fortunately, dog bites are no longer the leading cause of rabies
transmission to humans in the United States. The chance that a dog bite
victim will get rabies from a dog bite is very low. Bacterial infections
are very possible, however, such as staphylococcus (staph) infections
and tetanus. Dog bites can also cause scarring due to tearing and laceration
of the skin. All of these can be very expensive to treat. Make sure you
are properly compensated by the liable party if you have been attacked by a dog.
