If I have been hurt by a dog, but not bitten, do I still have a case?

In the state of Massachusetts, dog owners and dog keepers are responsible for their dogs. There is case law in Massachusetts in that if you’re not actually attacked or bitten by a dog, but you’re injured because of a dog, you may still have a claim. For example, if a dog gets away from its owner or its keeper and it jumps on top of you or knocks you to the ground and you suffer injuries because of that, you have a potential claim or a potential cause of action for your injuries.
