Does a beware of dog sign hurt my claim?
I was recently asked a question by a client with respect to a dog bite. He had been the victim of a dog bite and he noticed that there was a sign, and the sign had effectively said “BEWARE OF DOG” or something of that nature. The question the client had for us was simple: “I got attacked by this dog through no fault of my own, but there was a sign that said, ‘BEWARE OF DOG’ does that ruin my case?” As a general matter, signs are important. Signs are significant facts in cases.
What we learned is that, even though there may have been a sign indicating beware of dog, some juries and some people can process that information to take it to mean that you had knowledge of that dog’s dangerous propensities. The mere existence of a sign indicating some sort of danger or warning does not mean that you do not have a claim. It’s important that you retain an experienced dog bite attorney as soon as possible to help guard and guide you through the process.
