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.
