Can I sue my relative if his dog bit my son in the face?

Yes, a person bitten by a family member’s dog does have legal rights to sue relative for dog bite injuries. However, if the victim provoked the attack or was a trespasser on the property the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance company usually pays a settlement to the dog bite victim. Family members do not have to worry about the relative paying a settlement out of their own pockets and insurance rates usually do not increase after this type of settlement payment.
