Lancaster Dog Bite Attorneys

Tens of Millions Won by Dog Attack Lawyers in Lancaster, PA

Dog owners take their own animal’s friendliness for granted; however, one person’s ‘friendly’ dog could be a serious threat to children and passerby. Dog bites can leave people with permanent scarring or disfigurement, nerve damage, and other serious injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 1 in 5 people who are bitten by a dog require emergency medical treatment, which amounts to 386,000 people a year. The most likely people to die or suffer lifelong harm from a dog attack are young children. When an irresponsible dog owner allows their animal to harm another person, it’s not the dog that’s responsible—it’s the owner.

How Are Owners Responsible for Dog Bites?

The state of Pennsylvania holds owners of aggressive dogs liable for failing to safely secure their pet or warn others of their pet’s disposition. Owners are liable for all medical expenses and other losses associated with their dog’s bite, no matter what type of breed it is. Any dog has the potential to attack humans, and an owner must know theirs well enough before allowing it near other people.

The law classifies bites as either severe or non-severe. A severe bite results in broken bones or lacerations that require stitches or surgery. Non-severe bites may or may not break the skin and require minimal medical attention. The type of claim a bite victim makes depends on where a bite occurred. If a dog attack occurred at a person’s home, then the victim might be able to make a claim through homeowner’s insurance. Other bites might require filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Dog bites do more damage than many people realize. In some instances, dog bites require reconstructive surgery to correct. Unfortunately, many health insurance providers do not cover this type of injury, so a dog bite victim will need to file a personal injury claim to seek the compensation they need for medical care. The attorneys at Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLC are ready to help dog bite victims get the solutions they need.
