A: So long as the owner of the dog is known, you may be able to recover for your injuries against the owner directly. You may also be able to file a complaint with the local district justice to have the dog declared dangerous.

You may also have a personal injury claim against the apartment complex owner, if it can be shown that the landlord or its property management complex had notice of a dangerous dog on the loose and did not warn its tenants or otherwise failed to act under the circumstances. It is important to note that each case is unique and depends on the individual facts and circumstances. It is best to speak to a lawyer who specializes in dog attack cases immediately in order to preserve your rights.
