Dog bite cases are common and often lead to serious injuries or even death. In Florida, dog owners are held strictly liable for the damaging actions of their pet. In other words, to determine the liability of a dog owner, reference to Florida's strict liability statutes will have to be made. Also, the specific facts of each respective case plays a key role in evaluating the liability and damages of a dog bite case. Preserving evidence after a dog bite takes place is important in order to avoid the dog owner's attempt to raise an affirmative legal defense.
