Dog Bite Laws in Florida

As long as the injury victim was not unlawfully on private property, Florida dog bite laws clearly state that a dog owner can be held liable for injuries their pets inflict. This is true even if the owner had no prior knowledge that the dog would act aggressively towards other people.

In many cases the owner can be found responsible. Contact Pittman Law Firm, P.L. and let us evaluate your case for free!

Compensation for Damages in Dog Bite Cases in Fort Myers

You are protected by law if a vicious dog has been allowed to roam free, and subsequently attacked and injured you or your child. To establish the facts may require an investigation, including interviewing neighbors that have observed the dog over time. The dog bite statute holds dog owners for bites when it can be established that the animal was not provoked.

The owner may claim that he or she was unaware that the dog had a vicious tendency in order to try to avoid being held liable. Your case is unique with regard to exactly what happened, where it happened, and the degree of the injuries inflicted. It is important that your right to pursue full financial compensation is protected by a Fort Myers dog bite attorney as early as possible after the incident.
