Sarasota, FL Dog Bite Claims
While many consider dogs to be man’s best friend, unfortunately, dogs left unchecked by their owners can cause devastating injuries. According to Florida’s Department of Health, over 600 Floridians are hospitalized each year due to injuries sustained from dog bites. On average, two Floridians die each year because of those injuries. Children between the ages of one and nine years old are the most at risk for injury from a dog.
If you or a loved one suffered a dog bite, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of wages, and more. With over 30 years of experience, our Sarasota dog bite attorneys are ready to help you fight for your full and fair compensation.

What To Do After a Dog Bite Injury
While animal attacks can come out of the blue, you should always have a plan to not only ensure your safety but also keep a record of your injury. Follow these guidelines if it happens to you.
Distance yourself from the dog
After a dog has bitten you, your best course of action is to ensure your safety from being exposed to another attack. Create space between you and the dog: get inside your home, car, or create a physical barrier between you and the dog using the space you have around you.
Photograph your injuries
Take as many pictures or videos of your injury as possible to show evidence for your claims report. Your wounds may heal over time, but your photos can show the severity of your injury when you first encountered the dog.
Once you are in a safe environment, contact the authorities to help defuse the situation, and report the animal.
Go to the hospital and seek treatment from a medical professional for your injuries.
