Dog Bites and Attacks

Domesticated pets are now a very prevalent part of our society and accidents sometimes happen involving these animals.  A dog bike attack can be traumatic especially for children who are the majority of these victims.  The injuries sustained by anyone suffering an animal attack can also lead to physical scarring and permanent disfigurement.  But also you should be apprised of the fact that there are long lasting effects of being attacked by a wild animal.  These would include post-traumatic stress disorder.

How a dog bite lawyer in Media, PA helps victims

Many people are wary of pursuing a dog bite claim against a neighbor because they understand accidents happen, do not want to disrupt the relationship.  The truth is, you are not suing your neighbor you’re suing an insurance carrier to cover the costs associated with your injuries.

In Pennsylvania, the “one bite rule” does not exist anymore.  If a person is negligent in overseeing a pet and you are harmed as a result, you have a right to pursue a claim against them for your economic losses.
