Dog Bite Injury Claims

In our 55 years of collective legal experience, we have handled thousands of personal injury cases in Miami-Dade, and we would be honored to help you too.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), nearly 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs every year, and half of the victims are children. Further, one in five dog bites results in serious injuries that require medical attention.

It is important to remember that any dog has the potential to bite. Some safe tips to remember when you are near a strange dog include:

  • Do not approach a dog you are not familiar with
  • Avoid running from a dog
  • If you are approached by a strange dog, remain motionless
  • If a dog knocks you over, roll into a ball
  • Never disturb a dog that is eating
  • Never disturb a dog that is caring for puppies
  • Avoid making eye contact with a unknown dog
  • Do not pet an unknown dog without letting it sniff you first


According to the Insurance Information Institute and State Farm, dog bites accounted for more than one-third of all homeowners insurance liability claims paid in 2013. If you were bitten by a dog, you should immediately contact Pennekamp Law, P.A. for help.
