About Florida Dog Bite Law
Our clients are often relieved to hear that Florida law is favorable for dog bite victims. With a few exceptions, the law recognizes strict liability, which means that owners are held responsible when their dogs bite people, regardless of owner negligence.
Attorneys and staff at Mike Walker Law take on homeowners, dog owners and property landlords to get justice for our clients. Sadly, many dog bite victims are actually attacked by the dogs owned by people they know. These dog bites occur when visiting friends or neighbors.
Because of the relationship between the two, injury victims are often reluctant to file a lawsuit. They should know that compensation for dog bite victims often comes from the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance coverage. However, some policies exclude coverage for dangerous dogs, like Rottweilers, Pit bulls and Chows.
Because each situation is unique, it is important to talk to an attorney about the specific facts of your situation before making decisions. Consultations with the Clearwater dogbite injury attorneys at Mike Walker Law are free and confidential, so there is nothing to lose. Call us at 727-797-2020 or complete our online contact form.
