Dog Bite Cases in Florida
Florida has a strict liability dog bite statute applying to dog owners
whose pets cause an injury to another when that person is in or on a public
place or when the person is lawfully on or in a private property, including
the pet owner's premises. This law is based on negligence, which refers
to the duty of pet owners to take proper precautions to protect others
from injuries caused by their dogs. When the dog owner is negligent in
regards to his dog, he can be held responsible for any injuries inflicted
by the dog on others.
Dog bites and attacks can result in severe bite wounds and mauling, and
can include being knocked to the ground with attendant bruises, sprains,
broken bones or teeth, and trauma, especially for children. In the event
of such an incident, you deserve compensation for medical expenses, lost
wages, and possibly pain and suffering. The damages that may be recovered
will depend on the amount of medical bills incurred, extent of injuries,
and other factors.
