An unprovoked attack by a dog can be devastating
to your family, loved ones and minor children.
Often times innocent victims are harmed as the
result of negligent, careless and irresponsible
pet owners. In Florida, thousands of people are
injured annually as a result of animal attacks.
These attacks often lead to substantial damages
including scarring and occasionally death.
Unfortunately many small children can’t
appreciate the dangers or protect themselves
from these attacks often falling prey to the
apparent friendly pet.
|The State of Florida
recognizes the potential for animal attacks and
adopts a theory of “Strict Liability” when it
comes to Dog Bites. This means that an owner of
a dog is liable for injuries and other damages
caused by the attack regardless of whether the
owner was negligent or not. Therefore the
seemingly harmless dog in the neighborhood that
your children may pet or play with on occasion
is not excused when they strike!!!
