Generally, you cannot bring a legal claim to your municipality if a stray dog bites you as they are not responsible for these animals. However, if the dog that bit you is being kept in a government-run pound, and escapes and bites you, you may have a claim against the pound. You will need to prove that the pound was negligent which led to your injury. Contact Hogan Injury for legal advice regarding this matter.
