My dog (a 1.5 yr. old husky) was on his leash in the front yard while I was watering my grass. A pit bull ran up my driveway towards me, or so I thought, the dog ended up attacking my dog while the owner stood by and watched. I had to spray the dog and physical pry his jaw off my dog's neck. The owner took their dog and ran away, fortunately, all of my neighbors came outside and witnessed the horrid scene. They provided me with the dog owner's location. My dog sustained many injuries including, a broken leg, and severe open wounds on his neck. I reported the dog/owner to the authorities, but I am unsure of my legal options. Should I hire a lawyer and sue? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
