Miami Dog Attack Attorney

Do you have a dog? Whether you do or not, it should come as no surprise that dogs are America’s most popular pets. There are millions of them in households throughout the country. While you may occasionally hear about a dog attack in the news, you probably think those incidents are just flukes. However, dog bites and attacks are more common than you think.

Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates knows that you likely never thought you would have to deal with dog attack injuries. We understand these cases and are ready to help you recover the compensation you deserve. Often, dog attacks are the result of a dog owner’s negligence. We want to ensure they are held responsible for their actions. When you need a Miami dog attack attorney, call us today.

What Really Happens?

There are nearly 90 million dogs in the U.S. and over 36 percent of households have a dog. Most of us do not think twice about walking past a dog, but you may be surprised to discover that there are actually around 4.7 million dog bites each year in the U.S. While most of these bites are minor, many dog attacks are major and leave a victim with major injuries.

  • The CDC says that nearly 1 in 5 people bitten by a dog require medical attention.
  • Children and the elderly are at particular risk of being seriously injured by a dog.

When we talk about dog attacks, we need to point out that many of them happen due to the negligence of the dog’s owners. These incidents can happen when:

  • A dog is not properly secure on their premises. If a door or fence is left open, the dog can escape and wander.
  • A dog owner decides to let their pet off its leash despite leash laws that make that illegal.
  • A dog owner allows an aggressive dog to be around other people and pets.

Dog attacks can cause major injuries. Dogs have very powerful jaws that can inflict soft-tissue damage as well as damage to veins, arteries, tendons, and muscles. These attacks can also leave a person disfigured and with a loss of function to parts of their body.

Emergency surgery and plastic surgery are sometimes required to fix injuries from dog attacks and victims are often left with lasting emotional and psychological damage.

In The Aftermath Of An Attack

Dog attacks are scary. In the aftermath of an attack on you or a loved one, you need to focus on healing, not whether or not you can afford the medical bills. Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates are ready to step in and ensure you get the compensation you deserve. This can include:

  • Your medical expenses related to the attack
  • Lost income and benefits if you are unable to work
  • Pain and suffering/loss of enjoyment of life damages
  • Punitive damages against the person responsible
