Can a person breaking into a house sue the owner if that person gets injured?

If the injury is based on neglegence, no, but if the injury is by some specific intentional act of the homeowner, yes. To sue for injuries based on negligence, a plaintiff must prove that the homeowner had a duty of care to the burglar to provide a safe environment; that the homeowner breached that duty and that the burglar's injury was proximately caused by that breach of duty. Whether a duty of care exists is a matter of fairness and public policy and exists as a matter of law, not of fact. A homeowner does not owe a duty of care to a person illegally entering the house; therefore even if that person is injured by the homeowner's negligence, there is no liability because there was no duty of care. Never the less, a homeowner can be sued for certain intentional as opposed to negligent actions. The famous example is the so-called "spring-gun" situation. There the homeowner set up a rifle pointing right at the front door in such a way that anyone breaking in through the front door would set off the rifle and be shot dead or seriously wounded. The use of deadly force in that situation is excessive and the homeowner would be held liable.
