My dog bit someone on my property? Can I be held responsible?

Posted on

We’re often asked if my dog bit somebody on my property, Can I be held responsible? And the simple answer is yes. For example, if a postal worker walks onto your property to deliver the mail and your dog attacks them, your dog can be responsible, you can be responsible to pay for that postal worker’s or delivery person’s damages.

So yes, that’s why it’s important to have the proper homeowner’s insurance and homeowner’s insurance that’s going to cover all the losses so you are not personally responsible and you are not personally writing checks to whichever person may have delivered things to your property.
