Owners Are Responsible For Dog Bites And Animal Attacks
Dog bite victims in the United States number in the millions every year, and victims are bitten in the face more than any other location — largely because most victims are small children, many of whom end up in the emergency room. People who fail to properly train and restrain their pets must be held accountable.
The first thing you should do if you are bitten by an animal is to seek medical attention immediately. If you are not treated, an animal bite can cause serious injury and infection, as well as the risk of scarring or disfigurement. Florida has a strict liability dog bite law. This means that a dog owner is legally responsible (liable) for a dog bite, regardless of whether the owner did anything wrong with respect to protecting others from attack.
