Certainly the owner of the dog would be liable. The home owner may be liable if he or she allowed the dog to be there and knew that the dog was vicious. If you are the owner of the dog or the home owner file a claim with your homeowner's insurance carrier and they will provide you with an attorney to defend you. If you are the person who was bitten by the dog go see a local attorney who can help you out in this matter. Good luck!
