If a dog has bitten you and serious injury ensued, it all depends on the circumstances of the situation whether or not you’d be able to receive compensation from a liable owner. However, there are several laws in place that dictate certain situations regarding liability with dogs.
Florida Statute 767
The law provides some ‘grey area’ when it comes to what is considered negligence. If a case ends up going to court if a settlement cannot be reached in the pre-litigation stages, it is up to the judge’s interpretation. It is also rather difficult to receive high settlement offer from the insurance companies because unless the dog carried any diseases, a puncture wound from a dog bite is often times easily treatable.
