Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, an Illinois licensed attorney, and I will do whatever I can to answer your question.
It is possible that the association could be liable only if they knew of the dog being on the property and took no action. Without prior knowledge there would be no vicarious liability.
I hope this is helpful. If you have any follow up questions feel free to post them. It is never a problem.
Thank you.
