Medical Documents

Your PA dog bite attorney must order, pay for and acquire a complete copy of all of your medical records and bills.  If you are claiming an aggravation of a pre-existing condition, the acquisition of your family doctor’s medical records from the 5 previous years is a necessity.

If your dog attack wounds left permanent scars, your PA dog attack lawyer will need photos from the date of the attack, as well as current ones. Normally, a professional photographer is hired to take photos of permanent facial scars.
