Beware of Dogs By Bill Groner on September 19, 2012

Many of us have dogs as pets.  While most of our pet dogs are loving and gentle, some, however may have vicious propensities.  If they bite someone, you may be responsible for damages.    On the other hand, for those of you who have been bitten or injured by a dog, you cannot recover money just based upon the fact that the dog bit you.  In order to recover money damages for your injuries, you would have to show that the dog had vicious propensities.  In other words, you would have to prove that the dog had the propensity for being wild, vicious, ferocious or the like.  As a layperson, you may not know how to learn about the history of the dog.  On the other hand, the experienced attorneys at Worby Groner Edelman have handled many cases where the plaintiff has been bitten or injured by a dog with a vicious past.  During the various phases of your lawsuit, your attorney, along with an experienced investigator, will be able to determine if the dog who bit you had a violent past.  So, if you, a family member or anyone you know has been the victim of a dob bite, call us at Worby Groner Edelan.  We will answer any questions you have and remember, there is never a fee unless we are successful!
