Dog Owner Strictly Liable For Medical Bills of Dog Bite Victim

Posted on: July 17th, 2014  padog

On 7/12/14 & 7/9/14, Attorney Newell reviewed in his blogs the precedent setting 7/1/14 decision he obtained from the Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas regarding Punitive Damages. Another important aspect of this judicial decision was the issue of medical bill reimbursement for PA dog attack victims.

T1SCB

Previously, the only way a PA dog bite victim could make a claim for medical expenses was pursuant to a “negligence” claim. Your PA dog attack lawyer presented a legal claim to the Dauphin County Judge based upon “strict liability.” Judge Tully accepted Attorney Newell’s theory. This legal ruling now permits the Dauphin County dog bite victim to obtain medical bill reimbursement without having to show that the owner of the 3 boxers was negligent or reckless on 11/21/12.

The PA Dog Law has now been interpreted to allow victims to recover payments for medical expenses under 2 separate legal theories. Bitten by a dog?
