A dog bite accidents attorney has experience with animal attack injuries. We can help you to understand that dog owners are required by Pennsylvania state law to keep dogs confined on leashes or within their own properties. If a dog attacks someone or bites someone, the dog’s owner can be held liable for any injury and/or damage that may occur as a result of this bite or bites. If a landlord allows a tenant to own a dog that is dangerous, they can be held liable for any injuries too.
According to Pennsylvania’s Dangerous Dog Laws, 3 P.S. 459, a dog is a “dangerous dog” if:
The dog doesn’t have to be labeled a dangerous dog for these laws to apply. This means that even if this is the first time the dog has been aggressive, any individual injured by said dog can sue for injuries or damages.
