Can I Be Criminally Charged if My Dog Bites Someone in Ocala or Gainesville?

Yes, as an experienced personal injury attorney, dedicated to helping people recover damages in civil suits, it is important to know that a dog attack may result in misdemeanor or felony criminal charges. Criminal charges are more likely when a dog was previously declared dangerous by the authorities and it attacks someone or if the dog seriously injures or kills someone and the owner had prior knowledge of the dog’s dangerous traits.
