Dog Bite Victims Rights
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.
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.
The Pennsylvania dog bite law is comes from the Dog Law where the principal case interpreting it is, Commonwealth v. Hake, 738 A.2nd 46 (Pa Commw. Ct. 1999). The Dog Law is the Act of December 7, 1982, P.L. 784, as amended, 3 P.S. § 459-101 through § 459-1205. The group of statutes at 3 P.S. § 459-501-A through § 459-507-A, are known as the Dangerous Dog Statute.
