Dog Bites Cause Injury & Infection
Dog bites can cause serious injury to adults and children, including scarring and permanent disfigurement. In addition to the physical injuries and emotional trauma, dog bites often become infected. Some of the infections caused by dog bites can be extremely serious or life-threatening.
Animal bites may become infected with bacteria and viruses that include:
- Capnocytophaga bacteria
- Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
- Pasteurella bacteria
Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means that individual responsibility is considered in accident and injury cases. In some dog bite cases, the victim may be found to be partially liable – for example, if they were taunting the dog. In these cases, compensation may be reduced according to the degree of liability that is assigned to the victim. For example, if you were found to be 20% liable, your compensation award would be reduced by 20%.
Liability for Dog Attacks in Florida
Under Florida law, dog owners are responsible when their dogs bite someone in a public place or even on private property as long as the victim is on the property lawfully. The law applies to all dogs, regardless of viciousness or any prior bites.
