by Long Island Attorney Paul A. Lauto, Esq.
It is alleged that the dog had a known prior vicious propensity and that signs were clearly posted that prohibited walking dogs on school grounds. Many ballfields and other public places prohibit dogs for good reason. Unfortunately, these legal prohibitions are often ignored with potentially very serious consequences. Dog owners must respect posted prohibitions in order to avoid potential liability for the injurious actions of their dogs. It is far easier to keep your dog out of a prohibited area, than to defend yourself in a lawsuit and make an injured party whole again.
