Many cases of premises liability in Tampa, Florida, deal with slip-and-fall accidents, defective elevators and accidents at theme parks. However, incidents concerning premises liability may occur anywhere, particularly if it is an accident caused by inadequate security or a dog bite.
Accordingly, thousands of people are being involved in animal attacks and dog bites incidents every year. While a dog bite typically may be considered to lead to a personal injury case, it is also governed by premises liability laws. An individual's pet is considered to be property. This means that the owner has the responsibility to take care of that property and prevent it from causing harm to other people.
