Can I Make a Claim After a Dog Attacked Me in PA?

Posted on: June 22nd, 2019  padog

There is no “strict liability” in PA regarding a dog attack. In order for a Pennsylvania dog bite injury attorney to have the legal basis to make a dog bite claim, they must be able to prove that the dog owner acted in a negligent fashion and/or violated the PA Dog Law. Negligence is a legal theory based upon someone’s duty to act in a certain way and their inability to do so.

The PA Dog Law is a Pennsylvania Statute that provides strict guidelines for PA dog owners to follow. The law does not allow exceptions or excuses. Dog owners must follow the requirements 100% of the time. Section 305 mandates that a dog owner must always confine their canine either:  1) in their premises, 2) on a leash, or 3) in a hunting situation under the specific control/command of the hunter. Your lawyer for dog bite attacks in Pennsylvania frequently uses that particular statute in prosecuting claims versus non-law abiding dog owners. Read More

Why Do I Need a PA Dog Bite Lawyer?

Posted on: June 1st, 2019  padog

The dog owner hopefully is either insured by a renter’s liability policy or a homeowner’s insurance policy. Their representative is 100% committed to solely representing the best interests of the dog owner and insurance carrier. The adjuster’s job performance is based upon two criteria:  1) how quickly they can settle the case and, 2) for how little money they can resolve the claim. The insurance company representative is not your friend, but your enemy.

As a lawyer for dog bites in PA, my job is not to just even out the “playing field,” it is to tilt it in your favor to the maximum the law allows. Attorney Thomas J. Newell has been representing Pennsylvania personal injury victims since 1981. He has served as legal counsel to PA dog bite victims in 31 different Pennsylvania Counties! Shouldn’t your case be handled by a PA dog bite attorney with that level of experience and expertise? Read More
