Dog attacks can result in injuries ranging from cuts and bruises to broken bones, broken or damaged teeth, head trauma, and deep wounds requiring sutures or plastic surgery. In the worst cases, an aggressive dog attack can lead to death especially when it involves a pack of violent dogs or when directed at a small child. Regardless of the degree or severity of the attack, dog bite incidents can prove to be traumatic events. At Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, we know how much emotional distress and physical damage can be involved and how difficult it may be to understand the situation from a legal standpoint.
Florida’s dog laws specify what constitutes a dangerous dog and stipulate the liability of pet owners as well as the rights of anyone harmed by a dog. If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog in the West Palm Beach area, the legal help you need is just a phone call away. You can discuss your situation with one of our West Palm Beach dog bite lawyers in a free consultation to learn what you should do, what your rights are, and how we can help you get the compensation you may be owed for damages.
We are well-versed in the Florida laws that have been created to protect you in the case of an animal attack. You may not realize that you are protected by them should you be harmed by a dog, whether it’s a neighbor’s, a friend’s, or a stranger’s. You may, however, have legal rights which will entitle you to monetary damages for your medical expenses, lost wages or income, emotional trauma, and pain and suffering through the dog owner’s insurance company.
