Dog Bites

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur in the United States every year, and 900,000 of those bites become infected. The U.S. population is approximately 325.8 million people as of 2017. That means a dog bites 1 out of every 72 people. Most dog bite victims are children( Florida dog owners are responsible for their pets and are liable for any injury their pet inflicts on another person either in public or on the owner’s property.

The courts take into account many factors, including the dog’s prior behavior, the use of a “Bad Dog” warning sign and whether the dog was provoked when determining the dog owner’s legal liability. Florida law has an entire section of statutes related to dangerous dogs.
