Can anyone other than the owner of the dog be held responsible in Florida for injuries caused by a dog?

Transcript:

In Florida, the owner of a dog can be held responsible for a dog bite. But also, a harborer, keeper, or a possessor of a dog can be held liable. For example, if you leave your dog with someone while you’re on vacation, that person is now the keeper of the dog and under certain circumstances can be held liable for a dog bite.

If you rent and you have a dangerous dog, and the landlord is aware that you have a dangerous dog, in certain circumstances the landlord can be held responsible. That’s why it’s important for you to seek the services of an attorney who has experience in dog and animal cases so that he or she can answer these questions on your behalf.

You pay NO FEES or COSTS unless we settle or win your case!
