How Long After a Dog Attack Can I Sue?

Posted on: August 11th, 2019  padog

An adult (aged 18 and older) attacked by a dog in Pennsylvania has 2 years from the date of the dog bite to file a lawsuit in the correct county and provide the proper paperwork to the Sheriff’s Office for service. Your attorney for dog attacks in PA must have the necessary knowledge and experience to make all possible legal claims in the Complaint.

The failure to comply with these requirements will eliminate any potential legal case you may have. The Pennsylvania dog bite lawyer has represented dog attack victims in 31 different PA counties. He has filed countless lawsuits on behalf of PA dog bite victims over the course of his 38 year career. Attorney Newell has been a leader in pushing the legal boundaries to obtain maximum legal recoveries for his clients.

The Statute of Limitations for minors in Pennsylvania is a more complex issue. The non-economic personal injury portion of the victim’s claim extends until the date of their 20th birthday. However, economic claims for medical bills may, in some circumstances, be subject to a 2 year S of L. It is critical that you consult with an experienced PA dog bite injury attorney regarding these issues.
