Who Is Responsible for Dog Bites & Dog-Related Injuries in Florida?

Listen as Kissimmee personal injury lawyer, Michelle Incandela explains who is responsible for your dog bite injury you sustained in Florida.

Florida is a strict liability state, meaning the dog owner is responsible for your injuries. You are not required to prove the dog was vicious or had a history of previous attacks. There are some exceptions, but the dog owner is generally responsible to compensate you for your injuries.

In addition to the injuries sustained by people, dog owners are also responsible for injuries caused to other domestic animals. These rules actually apply not only to bites, but to any injuries sustained from the dog’s actions.

If you are involved in an incident, remember to document it and collect the owner’s information and any vaccination information that is available. Also, you should report the incident to animal control, documenting that the dog caused an injury. Watch the video to learn more.
