Panama City Dog Bites Attorney

Safeguarding the Rights of Dog Bite Victims – Call (850) 764-0383

Did you know that approximately 800,000 seek medical attention after dog bites each year? In Florida, as in most other states, the dog owner is responsible for these injuries whether the dog has exhibited dangerous tendencies before or not.

Dog owners should take the necessary measures to protect others from becoming injured by using a leash or a fence to secure their dog. Bites often cause serious and permanent injuries and scars, especially to children. If you were seriously injured in a dog attack, get in touch with our firm.

When is a Dog Owner Liable for A Dog Bite?

Florida follows a “strict liability” law when it comes to dog bites. This means that a dog owner can be held liable even if did not have knowledge that their dog would act aggressive as long as the injured person was in a public place or lawfully on private property.

Damages You May Be Able to Cover

Dog bite law is actually very straight forward, here in Florida and elsewhere in the county. The owner of the dog will in fact be liable for the damages caused in the injured if the injured is in a public place, such as a park, or lawfully in a private place, by invitation or implied invite. This leaves the few exceptions of the injured being on one’s premises illegally or the warranted use of dogs in a police matter.

  • If you’ve been hurt under circumstances covered by the law, you may recover:
  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Punitive damages
  • Mental anguish
