Tampa Dog Bite Attorney Discusses If Someone Other Than the Dog Owner Can be Responsible

Oftentimes when an individual’s been involved in a dog bite case, they ask if someone other than the dog owner can be responsible.  Absolutely. For example, if a dog owner lives in an apartment building or rented  home and the owner knows that the individual has a dog, and is aware of the vicious propensities of that dog.  The owner must know that the dog has either snapped at someone, bit someone, chased that individual in a violent manner. If that individual has knowledge of the presence of the animal and the vicious propensities, that individual be it the management company or the owner of a home can also be held responsible for the dog bite victim’s injuries and damages.
