Hialeah Dog Bites

Many people do not consider dog bites to be a serious type of personal injury, but these types of animal attacks can in fact prove deadly. Each year, children are killed by large dogs and even small dogs can cause severe bleeding, scarring, infection, and other injuries. For children, medium-sized dogs can cause serious eye injuries, soft tissue injuries, and other types of injuries. Head injuries in Hialeah can be caused by dogs. For small children, brain injuries in Hialeah and other communities are sometimes caused by dog attacks.

We Will Fight for Your Rights

The attorneys at the Flaxman Law Group have dealt with many dog bite and animal attack victims, and have seen firsthand the painful road to recovery that these patients face. In some cases, patients require skin grafts, skin resurfacing, and other so-called cosmetic procedures in order to regain their confidence. In other cases, soft tissue or nerve damage occurs and patients need rehabilitation and physical therapy to regain a wide range of motion. Bites from large dogs can even lead to broken bones and fractures, which can take some time to heal. For all of these reasons, contact the Flaxman Law Group today if you have been the victim of a dog attack. You deserve to know all your legal options so that you can take the correct steps you need in order to heal fully.

Don’t Underestimate the Costs and Seriousness of a Dog Attack

The truth is, a dog attack can prove very costly. There may be many expenses that you are not even considering. For example, you may need emergency medical care if the bleeding is severe. You may need to get stitches, pain medication, vaccinations, and other medications as well. If the damage is significant, you may need physical therapy, surgery, cosmetic procedures, follow-up skin care, visits to specialists, and a host of other medical services. You may need to take time away from work and you may lose wages as a result.

It is unfair for you to have to pay for all of these costs if the dog owner’s negligence and recklessness led to the attack. Although Florida law does not hold dog owners accountable in cases where the dog was defending an owner or the owner’s family, in many cases dogs attack without provocation and because they are not properly secured with leashes.
