Dog Causes Bicycle Crash – Who Is Liable?

I was riding my bike on a residential street in Nashville, Tennessee and a dog attacked me.  I know who owns the dog.  I crashed my bike and broke my elbow.  Is the dog owner responsible for what happened? 

Perhaps.  I would need more facts but under Tennessee law dog owners are not supposed to let dogs run at large and are responsible for the harm caused by the dog if the dog is permitted to run at large.
