In Florida, thousands individuals each year are victims of an unprovoked attack by a dog. These attacks often cause serious injuries resulting in extensive scarring and sometimes even death. Unfortunately, children often fall pray to such attacks as they cannot fully appreciate the potential dangers in approaching some dogs or are simply too small to defend against such an attack. However, Florida has employed a theory of liability known as “Strict Liability” when it comes to dog bite cases. This means that an owner of a dog is liable for injuries and other damages caused by the attack regardless if the owner was negligent or not.
