  • How a West Palm Beach Dog Bite Lawyer Can Help

    Regardless of the dog’s history, a dog's owner is strictly liable in Florida for any injury their dog causes. Therefore, West Palm Beach dog bite victims may be eligible to receive compensation for damages unless the victim was trespassing or was found to have provoked the dog.

    Damages may include:

    • medical bills
    • loss of wages
    • pain and suffering
    • punitive damages
  • Common Injuries from Dog Bite

    Dog bites can result in various injuries, from minor to severe.

    Here are some examples of dog bite injuries that are most common:

    • Puncture wounds: A puncture wound is a scar caused by a dog’s teeth breaking through the victim’s skin. A puncture wound can damage tendons, nerves, and even bone.
    • Infections: A dog bite carries a serious risk of infection as bacteria is transferred from the dog’s mouth into the wound. A dog bite infection can require antibiotic treatment or hospitalization.
    • Scars: Dog bites often physically scar the victim, sometimes permanently.
    • Emotional trauma: In addition to physical scarring, dog bites can leave emotional scars as well. Many dog bite victims suffer from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), leading to anxiety, flashbacks, and nightmares.
