Is the Owner of the Dog That Bit Me Liable?

The owner of the dog that bit you is liable. In Florida, there is a dog bite statue that is very broad. Basically, if you were the owner of a dog and your dog causes injury to another person, you are liable for that person's injury. If you've been injured in any way by a dog, you should consult an attorney familiar with dog bite cases.
