Who’s Liable in a Florida Dog Bite Case?
Florida is a strict liability state for dog bites, which means the owner is very often at fault. So long as the attack took place in a public area or on private property when the victim had a right to be on that property (in other words, they weren’t trespassing), the owner can be held liable for the attack, and they will be responsible for paying all damages. Those damages can include:
- All medical bills, including long-term care
- Cosmetic surgery for scars
- Lost wages while away from work
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional suffering and trauma
- Wrongful death
You can collect money for these and other expenses regardless of whether the dog had previous violent or aggressive tendencies that the owner was aware of.
