  • Why You Need a Pittsburgh Dog Bite Lawyer

    Pennsylvania law states that when a dog attacks or bites, the dog owner is automatically liable for the aggressive behavior, regardless of the dog’s history. Therefore, the dog bite victim does not need to prove that the owner was at fault.

    There are exceptions to this law, however, which can prevent you from being compensated. These exemptions include incidents in which the dog was intentionally provoked or you were trespassing or breaking the law when the bite occurred.

    A service or police dog that attacks while performing its duties may also be exempt from this statute.

  • Types of Dog Bites in Pennsylvania

    In Pennsylvania, dog bite victims are categorized based on the extent of their injuries.

    A Pittsburgh dog bite victim will fall into one of two injury categories:

    • severe
    • non-severe

    A severe dog bite injury is one resulting in broken bones or disfiguring lacerations that require multiple sutures or surgery.

    The distinction will significantly affect the compensation a Pittsburgh dog bite lawyer can obtain on your behalf and the damages you can be compensated for.

    Severe Injury Damages

    When the victim of a dog bite has been severely injured, they are eligible to claim the following:

    • medical expenses
    • lost wages
    • mental anguish
    • permanent disfigurement
    • pain and suffering

    Non-Severe Injury Damages

    Pittsburgh dog bite victims who suffer injuries that are deemed non-severe may only seek compensation for medical expenses.
