Normally, not a viable claim. But it may depend on whether or not the owner of the dog encouraged or allowed the person to approach the dog, and if the owner knew the dog may bite. However, it will be a difficult case, if the owner did nothing, except have a dog secured to a tree. Nevertheless, if a claim is brought, then it must be referred to your insurance carrier or an attorney who handles personal injury claims.
