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.
