When Dog Bites Occur

Dog bites and attacks can cause significant physical and emotional damage. Even if your injury does not seem severe, dogs have large amounts of bacteria in their mouths that can cause devastating infection and illness, on top of your emotional suffering. In cases of vicious attacks and mauling, victims can also suffer life-long scarring and disfigurement.

If you are the victim of a dog bite, you should take immediate action by contacting our team of Philadelphia personal injury lawyers. We can give you advice and guidance on the necessary steps to take, including:

  • Collecting names and contact information from any witnesses and the dog owner
  • Taking photos of your wounds before treatment
  • Seeking medical attention, even if the bite does not seem severe
  • Making a report to the local animal control agency

Minor bites may be easily cared for, resulting mostly in emotional damage. However, a severe bite can result in disfiguring lacerations that need multiple sutures or cosmetic surgery to repair, as well as broken bones. In some cases, these injuries can be catastrophic for victims and their families.

Dog Law and Seeking Damages

Pennsylvania law provides that a severely injured victim can make a claim against the owner of the dog for medical expenses and other damages resulting from the dog bite if the dog inflicted a severe injury on the victim and the victim did not provoke the dog.

A severe injury is an injury that results in broken bones or disfiguring lacerations requiring multiple sutures or cosmetic surgery. It is not necessary to prove fault in these instances, but it is necessary to show that the person being held liable owns the dog and that the dog was not provoked. Even if you are not severely injured, you may still make a claim against the owner of the dog for payment of medical expenses.

If the dog has previously attacked without provocation or has shown a propensity to do so, victims can immediately seek full compensation.

It is important to take quick action after you or a loved one has been injured by a dog bite. The statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the date of the injury.
