Every year, thousands of Americans are bitten by animals -- most often dogs. In many cases, a person bitten or attacked by a dog may have a legal right to recover damages from the animal's owner or another responsible party.
If a dog has bitten or attacked you or a loved one, you may be entitled to recover damages for any injuries that resulted. Determining your legal rights can be complicated, and it may be unclear who to bring a claim against, and to what sort of damages you are entitled.
