Tampa Florida Dog Bite Lawyer
"Florida Law imposes responsibility on the owner a dog who bites...sometimes the resulting dog attack causes disfiguring and permanent scarring for which compensation is available..."
Erik G. Abrahamson
Dog and animal attacks are unpredictable, and can often result in major injuries and sometimes even death. Even more alarming is the fact that children suffer a majority of the dog bites and dog attacks. Many states, including Florida, have specific laws regarding dog bites. Florida has a strict liability dog bite statute that states that the owner of a dog is liable for damages inflicted by his or her dog if it bites a person who is either in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the property of the owner, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owners knowledge of such viciousness. The dog owner is liable regardless of whether the owner had reason to believe it would behave in a vicious manner.
Though a dog bite or animal attack case may seem straightforward, the issues are quite complex and often involve questions of insurance coverage and a host of other legal concerns. In all dog bite and animal attack cases, it is crucial to take action, investigate the incident, preserve evidence, and carefully evaluate the injuries.
