Legal Protection for Victims
In the past, Pennsylvania’s civil laws followed a "one-bite rule." Following a dog bite incident, this law could limit or completely eliminate liability on the part of a dog owner if a dog had never previously attacked a person. However, this law has been amended, allowing victims to sue for legal damages even if a dog has not previously been vicious. If plaintiffs can prove that the dog acted without provocation, they may have grounds to collect compensation.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a dog, it is in your best interest to enlist the help of an attorney who can prove a dog owner acted negligently.
Victims with dog bite injuries can seek restitution for lost income, pain and suffering, and many other damages. However, like many personal injury cases, dog bite injury cases are not always simple. If you or a loved one has been injured by a vicious dog, it is in your best interest to enlist the help of an attorney who can prove a dog owner acted negligently.
