Who is Liable for a Dog Attack or Animal Attack in Miami Springs or Your Community?

A dog owner is primarily responsible in most cases. However, other people– such as dog sitters – may be liable if a dog is considered a dangerous dog and is registered with authorities as such. A landlord may be responsible for a tenant’s dog if the dog has a history of aggression and the landlord knows this but has not taken steps to keep others safe.

Where Can I Get Compensation for a Dog Bite in Miami Springs or Florida?

In some cases, homeowners’ insurance may cover part of the damages from dog bites if they occur on the dog owner's property. In some cases, if the attack occurred in a car, car accident insurance in Miami Springs or your community can cover it. Even if a dog owner does not have coverage, a plaintiff may still be able to pursue legal action against the dog owner. Attorneys representing the plaintiff can look to see what coverage is available and where compensation money can come from.
