Question:

What is the one-bite rule in Florida?

Answer:

Every dog bite case qualifies as a viable claim here in Florida. The reason is, a dog owner is strictly liable for injury to a person as a result of a dog bite. There’s a big misconception among the public that every dog gets one bite free here in Florida. Every owner has a duty to make sure that his dog is restrained and that he doesn’t pose imminent harm to any other person.
