In most states including Florida and Minnesota, a person is strictly liable for his or her dog’s bites. This means that if a person’s dog bites and injures another person, regardless of whether or not the dog has ever bitten anyone previously, the dog owner is legally liable for any injuries the dog inflicts. Injury caused by a homeowner’s pet is covered by their homeowner’s insurance policy.
