    A dog bite settlement depends on a number of different factors – mainly the extent of the economic damages (medical bills, lost wages etc.) and non-economic damages (pain and suffering).  If the attack left you with only minor injuries, be prepared to receive a smaller offer. This amount accounts for both the physical harm and the emotional agony and suffering.

    Florida is a “strict liability” state, which means that even if the owner was not previously aware of the aggressive nature of the dog, they are held responsible for a dog bite. Due to Florida’s “strict responsibility” law, victims of dog attacks may not always need to demonstrate that the dog’s owner was careless in order to be awarded damages. Even if the dog attacks someone without being provoked, the owner is automatically responsible with very limited exceptions.

    Regardless if the dog has been aggressive in the past, the owner of a dog that bites any person is liable for the damages caused. This means that if a dog attacks you, the owner may be obligated to pay for your medical expenses and pain and suffering. Additionally, the laws in Florida do not require the victim to demonstrate that the owner’s negligence caused their injuries.

    The “One Free Bite” restriction does not apply in Florida. This is because Florida law holds the owner of a dog that attacks or bites a person fully accountable. This still applies even if the dog had never bitten anyone or displayed aggressive behavior in the past. There are limited exceptions, such as when a person provokes the dog into biting or if the owner has warning signs on their property. However in most cases, you can take legal action against the owner by contacting a dog bite injury attorney.

    Local animal services investigates any dog-related complaint that is made. These investigators interview the owner and any other parties involved. They may also conduct a property inspection. Depending on the seriousness of the incident and the possibility that the dog could attack again, the dog may be impounded. If the dog is taken, it will be kept under observation while the investigation is being conducted. The dog might be put to sleep if the attack-related injuries are serious.

    Dog bite claims are handled by a personal injury attorney. This is because car accidents, slip and fall incidents, and any other cases relating to injuries are handled by personal injury lawyers. Contact an Orlando Dog Bite Lawyer if you have any questions about this process.
