Dog Bite Injuries

At Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford, we handle a wide range of personal injury lawsuits, including those involving dog bite injuries. Every year, thousands of people throughout Pennsylvania are injured because of the negligence of dog owners. Dog bites can result in:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Infections
  • Scars and disfigurement
  • Nerve damage
  • Rabies
  • Wrongful death

Sadly, the victims of dog bite injuries are predominantly children. Children often play and move erratically around dogs. Children may misinterpret a dog's behavior as playful when, in fact, an attack is imminent. But it is not up to children and other dog bite victims to prevent these injuries — it is strictly the responsibility of the dog owner.

Dog Bites And Strict Liability

Under Pennsylvania law, dog owners are strictly liable for the behavior of their dogs. This means that dog owners are liable for damages under any circumstance, aside from the dog being provoked. Even if the dog had no prior history of violence, the dog owner is still liable. If the dog was secured by a leash or other means, the dog owner is still liable. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling dog bite injury lawsuits and are prepared to help you obtain the compensation you need to make it through this difficult time.
