How do you sue someone for a dog bite?

If you’ve been injured by a dog bite, you have a right to bring a claim against the person who owned the dog or the person who is in control of the dog.  You can contact a personal injury lawyer to represent you on a contingency fee basis to bring your claim. Normally they’re able to work with the homeowner or the homeowner’s insurance to reach a settlement for money damages for your injury, your medical bills and your pain and suffering. If they are not able to do that they will then file a lawsuit against the homeowner or the dog owner to collect the full value of your damages.
