Dog Bite Lawyer in Tampa, FL

Leashed dog walking on sidewalkOur Tampa dog bite injury lawyer represents victims of dog & animal attacks resulting in personal injury. Dog bite injury claims from such an animal attack falls under Florida Dog Bite Law Statute 767.04. To a dog bite attorney an important aspect to that statute is that it makes a dog owner liable for a dog bite injury to another “regardless of the former viciousness of the animal or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness.”

In other words, a Tampa, FL animal owner can be strictly liable for dog bite injuries done to another. While there are defenses available to animal owners under dog bite laws, an animal attack case is one of the few examples of personal injury cases in which a defendant can be held responsible for injury damages to another even if the incident was not foreseeable.

At KFB Law, we’ll help victims file a dog bite lawsuit and obtain compensation.

Landlords can also be held responsible for dog bite or claw injuries caused by a tenant’s animal. However, a landlord is not strictly liable and a plaintiff would have to show some foreseeability of injury, such as a history of problems with the animal and circumstances surrounding the breed of dog.

It’s important to hire a dog bite lawyer because the statutes under Florida law that deal with dog bite injuries, ownership, animal control agencies, and dangerous breed classifications are complicated.
