Dog attacks can be deadly
Each year, approximately 450,000 people require medical treatment because of a dog bite. Approximately five million people are bitten by dogs each year. Dog and animal attacks can cause permanent scarring, rabies, infections, nerve damage and psychological damage. Dog owners are negligent if they fail to make sure their dogs are secured by proper fencing.
Florida has strict liability laws regarding dog bites. Unlike many other states, dog owners in Florida can be held responsible even if their dogs have never bitten anyone before. Simply posting a “bad dog” sign may not be enough to avoid liability.
