Our Lawyers Help To Hold Negligent Pet Owners Accountable
Pennsylvania law provides that an owner or handler of a dog or other animal has a duty to warn or protect visitors or passersby from that animal, if the owner has knowledge that the dog or animal has displayed aggressive behavior in the past, such as snapping or biting.
Unfortunately, children are most often victims of animal attacks and bites due to their short stature. Likewise, children are more likely to be attracted to animals and less able to defend themselves.
Animal or dog bites or attacks can leave you or a loved one with:
- Permanent scars or disfigurement
- Nerve damage
- Broken bones
- Serious emotional distress
- Psychological damage
Dog bites or animal attacks can occur in residential neighborhoods and parks, at businesses, on walking trails and anywhere dogs may be found. Animal or dog bites or attacks can occur as a result of the owner’s failure to keep the dog properly leashed, caged or otherwise restrained.
If you or your child has been injured as the result of an animal or dog bite or attack, call us and speak with attorney Benjamin F. Goodwin or Amanda M. Como.
