Tampa Dog Bites Attorneys

Trusted Personal Injury Law Firm since 1999

Plenty of Floridians own dogs, but some pet owners are less responsible than others. A dog is the owner’s liability – if the dog is to attack anyone, its owner will be held accountable. Any breed of dog can be dangerous in certain circumstances, especially around children. A dog bite can be a traumatic event and result in serious injuries, from broken bones to lacerations.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a dog attack in or around Tampa, you should seek experienced legal counsel to understand your rights and options. At Harmon Parker, P.A., our personal injury team can review your case during a free consultation to determine where you stand and how best to proceed. Our Tampa dog bite attorneys have been standing up for the rights of the injured since 1999 with proven results.

We have handled thousands of injury cases – call (813) 452-4144 today for a free consultation.

Florida Dog Bite Laws

Under Florida law, dog owners can be held liable when:

  • Their dog bites another individual
  • That individual is in a public location or is lawfully in a private space

While the law specifically refers to dog bites, someone injured by a dog in another manner – such as being knocked down and injured – may be able to hold the owner liable if it can be shown that the owner was negligent or did not use reasonable care in restraining the animal. In regards to dog bites, the owner can be held responsible even if he or she had no prior warning or reason to believe that the dog would attack.

Bring Your Case to Harmon Parker, P.A.

As a leading personal injury firm in Tampa, Harmon Parker, P.A. knows how to show that a dog owner’s carelessness led to your injuries. Your case may hinge on negligent monitoring of the animal, a dog left to run free, one left in the care of an inappropriate handler, or other forms of negligence. Our Tampa dog bite lawyers can investigate all angles of the incident to show fault that will substantiate your claim for the compensation you deserve.
