When you are bitten by a dog under any circumstance, your first inclination may be to hold the owner responsible. While it would be great if all dog owners took responsibility for their dogs, this is often not the case. Many dog owners are negligent and let their dogs roam free or behave erratically and then refuse to pay for the injury their dog has inflicted and the resulting medical bills. If you have been hurt by a dog and the owner is being difficult, do not hesitate to turn to our Boca Raton personal injury attorneys at Ovadia Law Group.

The Aftermath of a Dog Bite or Attack
Dog bites can lead to both physical suffering and emotional trauma. Many people who have bitten by dogs find themselves nervous around animals for months or even years after the accident. As such, we strongly advise that you file a personal injury suit to hold the dog owner responsible for their actions and to ensure you receive the compensation you need.
Dog bites can lead to the following type of injuries and emotional consequences:
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Emotional trauma
- Anxiety/nervousness around dogs
- Fear of going outdoors
Understanding Your Rights After a Dog Bite
Many dog owners blame the victim by saying it was your fault for getting near the dog or a variety of other excuses. However, dog owners have a responsibility to keep their dog on a leash or prevent them from attacking strangers or people they know. Regardless of the situation in which you were bitten, it is important that you know you have rights. If you have been attacked by a dog, you can speak with a Boca Raton personal injury attorney about filing a lawsuit against the dog owner.
