Bradenton Dog Bite Laws

Whether you're in Bradenton or Miami, the laws are pretty much the same. All Floridians need to know the state's common dog bite laws:

  • Florida statute 767.04 indicates a dog's owner is held responsible should their pet bite someone. It doesn't matter if that person was on their private property lawfully, or it was in a public place.
  • Owners are also held responsible for injuries or damage caused to a person or property if they were negligent in their care, such as when a dog is on the loose after not being properly leashed or watched while outdoors.

Dog bite laws like these are pretty similar across the nation. Whether in Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, or California, you'll notice similar ordinances.
