Pets, most often, Dogs, cause injuries by biting, clawing, jumping, or knocking someone down.
Florida Law provides strict liability on the owner of a dog for injuries resulting from an attack or bite if the victim was legally on the owner’s property or in a public place. The dog owner is liable even if the dog had no prior incidents even if the dog had never been aggressive before.
Unfortunately, many dog attack victims are children. It is crucial to advise children not to approach or attempt to pet a strange dog. Children should never be left alone with a dog.
