Premises liability refers to the responsibility that property owners have to keep their land safe for visitors, guests, and customers. This includes removing various obstacles that could cause fall accidents, and it includes providing reasonable warning of any dangerous animals or obstacles on the property. When reasonable warning is not provided, serious accidents can occur. A dog bite or attack that results in a lack of reasonable warning could warrant a personal injury lawsuit against the property owner.
If you or your child has been injured by a dog attack then the property owner whose property you were a guest upon may be held liable for the injuries you have sustained. Further, they may be responsible to compensate you for any financial hardships that have resulted from this attack. If you have been attacked by a dog, the first thing you must do is to seek medical attention. There are diseases that can be easily transferred and a hospital trip will help to prevent this. In addition, your wounds will be officially recorded and documented; this may help in your case in the future.
