Generally, the statute of limitations for a dog attack or a dog injury is just like any other personal injury claim and it varies by each state law. It’s normally a negligence claim for the dog owner who has failed to supervise or restrain his dog, and so each state will have a different amount of time in which you can bring a lawsuit. In Florida the statute of limitations for a dog bite case is four years. That means that your lawsuit against the owner of the dog or what any person that was in control of the dog must be filed in the correct court within that statute of limitations period. Otherwise, your case may be forever barred. If you’re unsure of the statute of limitations or have questions as to this issue, you need to contact an accident or injury attorney right away.
