Orlando, Florida Dog Bite Law Basics

In Florida dog bite cases, the degree of liability varies depending on the case.

If a dog bites someone in a private or public place where the victim is lawfully present, the dog owner may be liable for damages. Most of the time dog owners are liable for the actions of the dog regardless of whether the dog has bitten anyone before or is vicious. Two exceptions to this rule apply:

  • If the victim provokes, then the victim’s own negligence will be considered in determining the recovery.
  • Second, if the bite occurs on the dog owner’s property, and there is a sign that is easily readable and in a prominent place that states: “bad dog” − then the dog owner’s liability may be limited. This second provision does not apply if the victim of the dog bite is a young child.

Orlando Dog Bite Attorney to Handle Sensitive, Emotionally Challenging Cases

Most animal attacks occur at home or in the local neighborhood. On many occasions the victim of the dog bite is a delivery man or someone working in the home of the dog owner. If you are the victim of a dog bite while on the job, then you may also be entitled to worker’s compensation.

Because dog bites often happen in the home, the victim often knows the owner. In many dog bite cases, the owner is a family member, a close friend or a neighbor. This makes dog bite cases not only legally tricky, but also emotionally challenging. It is one thing to sue the weird neighbor who owns a dozen unkempt pit-bulls. It is another thing entirely to consider filing legal action against a best friend or brother-in-law.

Our dog bite attorneys are familiar with the complications relating to dog bites. We understand that often home owner’s insurance will cover the injuries, thus reducing the tension between familiar parties. We also understand that dog bite injuries can be very real and can result in significant scarring and expensive medical bills.
