Media Personal Injury Lawyer Examines Dog Owner Responsibility
As an experienced Media Personal Injury Lawyer I am often asked if the owner will be held responsible. In Delaware, the owner of a dog is liable to any person that the dog bites regardless of prior notice of vicious behavior. However, there are two exceptions. The dog owner is not responsible in the event that you are a trespasser or in the event that you are on the property illegally with the intent to commit a crime or that you are actually committing a crime or if you are bitten while committing a crime against another person physically. In those instances, the law will not allow you to recover from the dog owner.
Are you wondering if the owner of the dog you were bit by will be held responsible? If so, contact the experienced Media Personal Injury Lawyer Patrick Gibson.
