Why Choose Our Dog Bite Lawyers in Ruskin?

Florida’s Dog Bite Statute

Florida follows a strict liability rule when it comes to dog bites, which means that dog owners are held responsible for the injuries their pets cause, regardless of whether the owner knew the dog was dangerous or had a history of aggression. Unlike other states, which follow the one-bite rule, a dog owner is liable for bite injuries if their dog bites another person and that person is in a public place or lawfully in a private place, which may include the property of the dog owner.

The 2023 Florida Statutes § 767.04. Dog owner’s liability for damages to persons bitten.

The owner of any dog that bites any person while such person is on or in a public place, or lawfully on or in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, is liable for damages suffered by persons bitten, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owners’ knowledge of such viciousness.
