Can I sue a pet owner whose dog bites my dog?

Yes. You can sue the dog owner if his or her dog bites yours. He or she is responsible for the actions of the dog. However, beware that the owner may also argue their case depending on the circumstances of the bite. If the dog was provoked, the case may get complicated. In any case, a dog bite attorney should be in a position to help you prepare for any counter-arguments from the defendant’s side and seek fair compensation.
