Lakeland Settles Dog Bite by Police K9

Chris Russo Mar 17, 2010

The City of Lakeland settled a dog bite case for $6,500 with Shakeria Smiley.  The dog allegedly got out of the police car by accident when a woman, fighting with the officer, accidentally pushed a remote control button on the officer's body.  The remote control opened the door to the police cruiser and released the dog.

Moody Law represents persons injured by dog bites or other activities by dogs.  In Florida, there are strict liability laws that make the owner or possessor of a dog strictly liable for any and all damages caused by the dog.
