Dog bites often happen when you are walking by someone’s house or you’re at someone’s house. When you are bitten by a dog and you see a ‘Beware of Dog’ sign, clients sometimes think, well, it’s my fault; there was a ‘Beware of Dog’ sign. This is something that is a common misconception. Just because an owner puts out a sign that says, ‘Beware of Dog,’ that doesn’t absolve them of liability, especially if you can show that there was past knowledge that violent tendencies is an issue with their dog, whether it’s through vicious propensities in the past, or a prior bite. If you are bitten by a dog, don’t think you don’t have a right to recovery just because the owner told you through a sign to beware of a dog because the dog could act in such a manner.
