A: Under the Animal Control Act dog owners are almost always legally responsible for dog bites so long as the dog was not provoked and the victim had a legal right to be where the incident occurred. Renters' and homeowners' insurance usually covers dog bites (though breed restrictions do exist). If you have insurance, report it to your carrier. If you do not have insurance and the victim has threatened to sue, contact an attorney.
