Can a posted “Beware of Dogs” sign help to offset any liability of a dog bite in Florida?

Return to FAQ Videos

Transcript:

Under Florida law, the owner of a property who post a “Beware of Dog” sign can help to reduce their responsibility for anyone who’s bit by a dog that is behind the fence where this sign is posted. However, if someone invites you into their yard where the sign has been posted and the dog bites you, and they have invited you in any way, the owner of the dog can still be responsible. It’s a situation where you should consult with an attorney who’s experienced with dog bites.
