Do you know what the liablity is for a homeowner that has a dog that hurts someone?

By

Dogs are considered mans best friend - I know I love my little dog.  But do we realize the extent that we are responsibly for them if they were to cause injury to someone even if they didn't touch the person.

I recently read an article about a man that feel off his bike due to a dog charging at him.  The biker totally shattered a knee and required a complete knee replacement - after the biker sued the dog's owner the homeowners insurance and the HOA.  He racked up a settlement of about 2million.  Wow - and the best part of this story is that the dog that caused all this was only coming up to greet and give kisses it turns out that he had never harmed anyone and was the nicest dog you could ever meet.

I guess the best leason to learn is keep your pup on a leash no matter what kind of dog they are.

Just a thought!
