When a dog or animal attacks, it can be a shocking experience for everyone involved. A young child or even an adult can be seriously maimed or killed from a vicious dog bite. Victims of a dog attack need to seek medical attention.
If a person is killed by an animal attack, their loved ones may suffer from emotional and mental anguish, loss of companionship or family support. Victims and survivors may be entitled to seek compensation for the damages suffered under the law. Florida dog bite laws address a dog owner’s liability for all of the damages that the dog caused. The owner is generally considered liable if the victim’s attack occurs on public property or lawfully on private property.
