  • Florida’s Dog Bite Law

    Florida is one of the many states that recognizes that when a person chooses to own or keep a dog or other potentially dangerous animal, they must also take responsibility for the harm it could cause. To that end, Florida has imposed a “dog bite law” which places increased responsibility on dog owners.

    Florida’s dog bite law says that dog owners are liable whenever their dog attacks a person on public property, though that liability may be reduced if careless conduct on the victim’s behalf contributed to the attack. This means that the owner may be liable even if nothing could be done to prevent an attack. The liability is assumed merely by choosing to own a dog.

    The same usually remains true when the attack is on private property, as long as the victim is lawfully present. This means people who are invited to the property, but also postal workers, police officers, and other government agents. Prominently posted warning signs can reduce liability, but this isn’t a surefire method of protection.

  • How a Pensacola Attorney Can Help

    Florida’s dog bites law is fairly weighted towards victims of animal attacks. However, it’s rarely easy to get fair compensation for your injuries. The extent and value of a victim’s damage are matters that will be debated no matter the seriousness. As favorable as the dog bite law is, it can still be difficult to receive compensation for your injuries.

    Dog owners and their insurers will try whatever they can to minimize a victim’s losses in an attack, including employing experts to testify that the extent of their injuries and inability to heal is overstated. Insurers, owners, and professionals can deploy many arguments to deny you compensation for your injuries. It could take an experience Pensacola dog bite attorney to navigate those arguments.
