While in most cases we view a dog as man’s best friend, a dangerous dog is a nightmare. Most municipalities in Florida have leash laws, requiring owners to keep their animals out of the public at large. A dog is presumed to be domesticated unless it is proven otherwise. If a dog is not locked up, however, and it attacks or bites someone, the owner is strictly liable for any injury the dog causes.
Among the most dangerous dogs are Chows, Dobermans, Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, and Akitas. Specifically, they can cause severe and lasting injury, scarring, disfigurement, and even death. Thankfully at Tripp Law Firm, we handle cases involving dog bites on adults and children.
Although animal-attack claims most commonly involve dog bites, many other types of domesticated animals, such as ferrets, cats, and birds, also bite humans. Even non-domesticated animals, such as large cats in the wild that people shouldn’t own (like that of Tiger King), will attack children and adults. An owner’s liability for injuries caused by his/her pet varies between jurisdictions. For this reason, our experienced firm is committed to be an excellent source for accurate advice and information if you or a loved one are injured in an animal attack.
