Holding Negligent Dog Owners Accountable

Unless a “beware of dog” sign was clearly displayed on the property, the owner is almost always liable for the actions of his or her dog in Florida. Even if the dog has never bit anyone before, you can still seek compensation for your injuries.

No one wants to believe that their dog is capable of inflicting serious injuries on another person. The fact of the matter is, however, that dogs are still animals — and their owners are responsible for controlling them. Common dog bite scenarios include:

  • A fence was left open so a dog could get out.
  • A dog was not on a leash.
  • A pit bull attacks.
  • A jogger is attacked by an unrestrained dog.
  • A child is attacked by a dog because of an inattentive owner.
