Dog Bite Lawyers in Philadelphia, PA & Surrounding Areas

Dog owners are required by law to keep dogs confined to their property, or restrained and under control off premises. When a dog attacks or bites another person without provocation, the owner can be held liable. In addition, a landlord who allows a tenant to own a dangerous dog on premise can be held liable for the dog’s aggression.

In dog bite cases, damages may be awarded for medical expenses, disfigurement, and pain and suffering. Limited damages apply in cases where injuries are not severe and the owner had no knowledge that the dog could be aggressive.
If you or someone you know is bitten by a dog, seek medical attention, take pictures of your injuries and of the dog, if possible, and call us. Our experienced attorneys handle many dog bite cases each year, and can help you get the compensation you deserve.
