Dog Bite Injury Lawyer Miami, Broward, Palm Beach
There can be severe consequences for pet owners if their dogs bite another person in the state of Florida. According to the Florida Department of Health, more than 600 Floridians end up in the hospital each year because of dog bite injuries. What’s even more tragic is that two people die from their dog bites per year.
The liability laws allow dog bite victims to sue the dog’s owner for the unprovoked actions of their pet. A minor or severe injury resulting from a dog bite gives you the right to seek compensation in civil court. The injury could be a physical injury from the dog bite and any infections or diseases transmitted from it as well.
You can seek compensation for the following expenses resulting from a dog bite:
- Hospital bills
- Lost wages and salary income
- Short-term and long-term rehabilitation
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
The compensation you deserve could be worth many thousands of dollars, depending on the severity of your dog bite injury. In addition, the circumstances of the incident will also factor into how much compensation you deserve. For example, if it were a completely unprovoked attack on public property or your property, then you would be entitled to the maximum compensation possible.

When Do You Need to Hire a Dog Bite Lawyer?
You should seek a consultation with a dog bite lawyer if you have incurred a dog bite in a public or private place. Florida has strict laws regarding dog bites that put most of the liability on the dog owner, including in cases where the victim was lawfully on the owner’s property. The only instances in which the victim could bear some liability is if they provoked the dog intentionally or illegally trespassed onto the owner’s private property before getting bit.
Please talk with a dog bite lawyer regardless of the circumstances because they will explain your legal rights and liability in the matter. The lawyer can assess the evidence surrounding the case to estimate how much compensation you are entitled to receive under the law. If you want to pursue an injury claim against the dog owner, you should hire a dog bite lawyer to represent you from beginning to end.
