Is The Owner Of The Dog Responsible If The Dog Attacked Someone in FL?
If an individual is attacked by a dog in Tampa, FL, the owner of that dog is strictly liable for any damages suffered by the individual that was bitten, for example medical bills, wage loss and things like that. In order to collect monies for scarring and things like that it’s very important that we’re able to point out that the dog had vicious propensities, that the owner or someone safe guarding the dog. Let’s say the owner’s away on vacation, someone else is taking care of the dog, it’s important as to whether that person knew of the vicious propensities of the dog and it safe guarded the dog, kept it away from people and things like that. So the negligence or the carelessness of the individual in charge of the dog is also very important.
