There are two potential parties that are involved in a dog bite case. The first is the owner of the dog. The second is the person that is in control of the dog at the time of the dog bite attack. The person that is in control could be somebody that is walking the dog for monetary or non monetary purposes. Both those parties, the owner and the person that is in control of the dog are potentially responsible for that dog bite.

In order to bring a case against a dog owner or somebody who is in control of a dog, for that dog biting or attacking you, you have to prove only that you have been injured by that dog. In Massachusetts we have a strict liability standard. If that dog bites you, you can bring a claim, unless you have teased or tormented that dog.
