01 Mar Dog Bites
When dogs attack and bite unsuspecting children and adults, the owners of these animals need to be held accountable for the injuries. If you or a member of your family has been bitten or is the victim of a dog mauling, dog attack, or dog bite, contact our offices. To learn more if you are a dog bite victim, contact us so we can go over animal attack law. The state of Florida makes dog owners liable for dog bites when a person is bitten, based simply on owning the dog that did bites the victim. It is required the victim to prove that the dog was vicious or that the dog owner or another party caused the incident through negligence or by violating an animal control law. The good news is that the victim’s legal damages are covered by most homeowners and renters insurance policies purchased by dog owners, and by general liability policies that insure businesses and public entities.
