Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLP: Fighting for You

Every year in the United States almost 2% of the population is bitten by a dog. In a single year in Pennsylvania, there were 469 hospital discharges from dog bite injuries. The Pennsylvania Department of Health states that 46% of school children had been bitten by a dog by the time they reached the 12th grade. This is an alarming dog bite statistic. According to the CDC, about 60% of dog bite fatalities are among children under the age of 10.

Dog Bite Laws in Pennsylvania

A victim who was not severely bitten, would have to prove that the dog previously bit another person. Then the dog would fall under the “one bite rule” per Pennsylvania dog bite laws. If the dog has never bitten a victim before, Pennsylvania provides two different solutions to the victim that depend on the degree of injury sustained.

Injuries are classified as severe or non-severe:

  • Severe injuries: These are defined as injuries that result in broken bones or severe lacerations that require multiple stitches or cosmetic surgery.
  • Non-severe injuries: These are defined as injuries that required minimal medical expenses.

In Pennsylvania, aggressive dog owners are completely liable for medical expenses, all other losses and legal damages in any instance where a dog inflicted severe injury on a person without provocation. There is no exception to this, regardless if the dog has never bit a person prior.
