Factors to Consider in Dog Bite Cases

When determining who is responsible for your dog bite injury, several issues must be considered:

  • Could the attack have been prevented?Florida’s strict liability dog bite laws state that a dog owner is responsible for dog bite damages if a bite or attack is unprovoked by the victim.
  • Were there warning signs posted on the premises?Failure to post signs warning of a potentially dangerous animal means a dog owner may be legally responsible for your injury-related expenses.
  • Was the dog with its owner at the time of an attack?In certain cases, a non-owner can be held responsible for damages. Under Florida Law, a dog’s “holder” or “keeper” may be held responsible for damages if the dog has previously shown aggressive or biting behavior and that person was aware of the dog’s violent behavior at the time of the attack.

You do not have to take on the legal system alone. Our dog bite attorneys will investigate your claim and do everything we can to make sure the parties legally responsible for your injuries are held accountable.
