It depends. Before I discuss the potential liability of the homeowner's association, you should also explore the liability of the dog owner. In Pennsylvania, a dog attack victim may bring a claim against the dog owner. A dog owner can be held liable for a first and single attack, so long as the dog showed the requisite level of viciousness. Therefore, facts and witnesses surrounding your attack are vital to determining the requisite level of viciousness.

In order for the homeowner's association to be held liable, there must be a duty imposed on the association to protect you from the dog, and the association must have control of the premises where the dog was kept. Therefore, we would need to look at the association's by-laws and its duties in the community. Again, more facts are needed to properly make this determination.
Therefore, it is important that you speak to an experienced PA dog bite injury lawyer to properly assess your case and determine all possible parties responsible for your injuries from the dog attack.
