Can a “Beware of Dog” sign shield someone from legal action?
This query has a difficult answer. Even if they have a notice saying there is a dog and even if they warned you that the dog may bite, if you are allowed onto someone’s property and their dog bites you, they are nearly always liable for any damages. However, if you were on someone else’s property without their express permission, the sign may shield them from liability for any harm you caused.

What about wounds not brought on by bites?
Bite wounds are often the first thing that spring to mind when you think of being hurt by an animal. They are by no means the only ways to get hurt, though. For instance, a person may fall over a pet and hurt themselves, or they could be dragged down the street by a vicious dog on a leash. It would depend on the circumstances whether or not the owner was responsible for any damages.
