Dog Bite Laws Florida

According to Florida Statutes section 767.04 dog owners are liable for the injuries their dogs inflict on people if their dog bites another person and that person was in a public place or on private property, however this law does not apply to trespassers. Dog owners are liable even if they did not know their dog would behave aggressively.

    I was referred to Bonnie Glober from our accountant and I’m so grateful! Bonnie was quick to get in touch with me and spent so much time with me on the phone talking through my concerns and how she could help me with my noncompete questions. She was helpful and patient and even followed up to make sure things were resolved. I highly recommend Glober & Glober, Attorneys P.A.

    I was in a car accident with my two youngest children. Choosing to work with Glober + Glober was the best decision. They worked closely with our family throughout the entire process, keeping us informed, and exceeded our expectations. Jim is professional, courteous, hands-on and made himself available any time we had questions or concerns. I would recommend this law firm to anyone seeking quality legal counsel.
