The dog bite laws of Florida are if you own a dog, the dog bites somebody, you're liable. It's called strict liability. So, if you own a dog, it's important to make sure that you have insurance coverage in case your dog does bite somebody, unprovoked. One of the things you can do is put up a bad dog sign and that will help in relieving you of liability. Even if your dog isn't bad, you could still put the sign up to protect yourself. Also, when you buy homeowner's or renter's insurance, make sure they have not excluded dog bite coverage, in the event that your dog does injure somebody.
