FloridaDog Bites Lawyers in Miami, Florida

Although a dog may be man's best friend, these animals can often act in a way that is out of the human owner's control.


Under Florida common law, an owner or caretaker for a dog may be help strictly liable for the damages caused by the dog after an attack or biting incident.


In some states, it must be shown that the dog owner knew the dog had hurt another person before. In other cases, even a first bite can result in a finding of strict liability. Of course, if the owner is negligent then other types of liability can be imposed.


Attacks by some breeds of dogs can cause severe injury or even death, but even bites by small dogs can cause pain and infection.


Find out more about how a personal injury attorney that focuses on dog bite cases in Florida might be able to help you pursue justice in your case.
