Dog Bites – Chaban Law Group.
If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, you may be entitled to compensation for your injury. Florida law imposes strict liability upon the owner of a dog when a dog bites an individual who is on public property or lawfully on private property. Strict liability means that the owner will be liable for the injury regardless of whether the dog has prior aggressive tendencies. Further, Florida law does not require that a victim prove that the owner was negligent.

Typically, if a dog has injured you, the owner of the dog will be liable for the compensation for your injury(ies). However, if the attack took place on private property, there may be other parties who are liable for your injury, including the owner of the dog, the premise owner, and potentially an insurance company. There is a time limit to bring a claim for compensation for your injuries in Florida. It is important to speak with an attorney to ensure that you can and do receive the compensation that is just for your injury.
