Recovering Damages Following a Dog Attack
If the dog’s owner is at fault for what happened to you, you can seek damages from them. Damages can include both economic and non-economic losses including:
Many victims only consider their financial losses, but lawyers know that fair compensation usually also includes intangible losses. While your medical bills and lost wages may be significant, they won’t be the only thing that stands out following the attack. You’re likely to be equally or more concerned about the pain, sleeplessness, anxiety or depression that follow your encounter with the dog. Some people develop a lifelong fear of canines. Since you didn’t do anything to cause any of these losses, the dog’s owner should have to compensate you.

Yes, you can seek damages in a civil action. However, you may, in the first instance, serve a legal notice before approaching the Court.
