Question:

How does a beware of dog sign affect my claim?

Answer:

Beware of Dog Signs I was speaking with a potential client about a dog bite case the other day, and that person was telling me that they were delivering a package to a house with a ‘Beware of Dog’ sign on the gate. They were at work doing their job delivering a package, and they thought, “Well, I got attacked by the dog while I was up on the porch dropping the box off, but because of that ‘Beware of Dog’ sign, I don’t have a claim, do I?” The answer is you still have a claim. A ‘Beware of Dog’ sign does nothing to protect a dog owner under Idaho law.

You can’t antagonize a dog or poke at a dog or make it attack you and expect to recover damages, but merely having a property posted in Idaho with a ‘Beware of Dog’ sign does not eliminate the responsibility of the owner for damages that that dog causes to another who doesn’t do anything to antagonize the dog. Even though that warning was out there, that warning does not eliminate or reduce the claim for this person in this Idaho dog bite case. If you want to, give us a call to discuss your Idaho dog bite case where there was a ‘Beware of Dog’ sign posted.
