I was attacked by a dog in my apartment community. What are my legal options?

Question: I was attacked by a dog in my apartment community. Can I take legal action against the owner? Can I also take legal action against the apartment community if they knew the dog was dangerous from past complaints?

Answer: “You can take action against the owner, if there is proof of prior attacks by the dog or the dog was at large. In order to establish liability on the part of a land owner (the complex) you would have to prove that they knew of the dog’s dangerous nature and prior attacks.”
