At Elstein Legal, our personal injury professionals  in Miami Beach are skilled and experienced in handling dog bite cases and can determine whether or not you are entitled to financial compensation. We’re willing to help you find the help you need. However, we’ll first need to understand the specifics of your injury. 

Miami Beach Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

According to the CDC, 4.5 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year800,000 of those resulting in medical care. If you’re among this group of dog bite victims, you might not be able to pay for these unexpected expenses.

As most know, you should never approach a dog without the permission of the owner. Dogs are powerful animals whose bites can cause trips to the emergency room for severe injuries. More often than not, pet owners do a good job of gauging the aggression of their dogs and entertaining strangers accordingly. 

However, animal attacks can also occur from the negligence of a pet owner. In Miami Beach, the law states that all dogs who leave private property must be leashed at all times. If you or a loved one were injured as a result of a pet owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. 

Types of Dog Bite and Animal Attack Injuries

Injuries one may receive as the result of an animal attack may include—but are not limited to—the following:

  • Cuts, bruises, and abrasions
  • Serious injury to the skin and other soft tissue
  • Traumatic blood loss
  • Musculoskeletal trauma

Although you may think you have a great shot at pursuing a Miami Beach dog bite case on your own, navigating the law can prove quite difficult. Like most businesses, insurance companies have their bottom line in mind and will do their best to guide you towards a settlement that works in their favor. As a result, you could struggle to pursue other avenues for compensation that you may be entitled to. 

At Elstein, we can help you identify and traverse the legal obstacles that may come your way. For example, if you suffer a dog bite injury because a stranger’s dog approached without a leash, it may keep you from working normal hours at your job while you recover. To account for this, a Miami Beach animal attack lawyer can help you pursue lost wages. Additionally, our team can also address non-financial consequences such as pain and suffering.
