Florida Dog Bite Lawyers
Florida is one of the top two states in the nation for lethal dog attacks and major physical injuries.
When you’re the victim of a dog attack, we’re the top attorneys in Tampa Bay who will help you stand up for your rights and place the blame where it belongs. When someone’s dog bites you, knocks you over or otherwise causes you injury or harm, as a Tampa Bay resident you can seek compensation for these types of injuries and hold the owner responsible for the animal’s behavior.
Over a period of 14 years, 471 Americans were killed in dog attacks and 800,000 people sought medical care for dog bites. Children and older adults are the most common victims of dog bites, with 42% of fatalities occurring in young children under the age of six. According to Florida statute 767.04, when a dog owner fails to restrain their dog or take reasonable precautions to protect adults and children, the owner can be held criminally liable.
Unfortunately, only about 6% of dog bites result in meaningful criminal charges, down from a previous average of about 21%. This is why it is so important to hold these dog owners accountable in other ways through the legal system. We can help.

We’ll assist you with understanding your legal options and getting the resources you need to fully heal from your injuries.
