Orlando Dog Bite Lawyers
Holding a Pet Owner Responsible for Negligence
Dogs can cause serious injuries and other damages if they become aggressive and attack someone. When this happens, the dog's owner can be held responsible for the damages. As long as the dog was improperly restrained and was not provoked to attack by the injured individual, the injured person can file a personal injury claim against the pet owner.
Through the claim, the injured person can recover compensation for all:
- Medical bills
- And other damages or expenses resulting from their injuries
Dog bites require special medical attention in many cases, so be sure to retain a capable Orlando dog bite attorney by your side if you need to file a claim. Contact the Florida Injury Law Firm online now to maximize your compensation.
What Damages Can Dog Bites Cause?
Dogs carry a lot of bacteria around in their mouths. When someone is bitten by a dog, the wound must be properly cleaned in order to prevent serious infection.
Common infections resulting from dog bites include:
- Staph infections
- Sepsis (blood poisoning)
Contrary to popular belief, rabies is rarely carried by dogs nowadays. Along with infection, a dog bite can also cause scars from puncture wounds and tearing.
Some cases may even require surgery or may result in permanent nerve damage. In many cases, staph infections are severe and may have a lasting impact on the life of a dog bite victim.
Common symptoms of staph infections include:
- Oozing blisters and boils
- Joint swelling
- And fevers
