Should certain dog breeds be considered dangerous without proof?

When a person is bit by a dog, the results can vary widely. Some may be nipped and hurt for a moment without any breaching of the skin. Others may become the victim of a dog bite and need hours of surgery to repair the damage that has been done. Owners are often held liable for the damage that has occurred to the person but according to some laws, landlords may also be held liable.

Attorneys want change for breed-specific dog laws

A segment of the American Bar Association recently voted on a subject that may create a debate: laws prohibiting certain breeds of dogs. The Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section of the ABA will begin urging state and local legislators to repeal breed-discriminating laws and replace them with breed-neutral laws.

Boy attacked by dogs at uncle's house

The effects of a dog bite can be traumatic and long-lasting. Many families have been affected by such incidences, both on the side of the victim and the dog that attacked. In the case of an 11-year-old boy from Donora, Pennsylvania, it was more than just a single dog bite. According to reports, he has bite marks all over his body and received severe injuries.

Pit bulls distinguished as inherently dangerous in court

If a recent decision in another state has any sway, Pennsylvania courts may find themselves holding owners and landlords liable in certain personal injury cases. According to the decision from an appellate court in a state bordering Pennsylvania, plaintiffs will no longer have to prove a history of violent behavior in pit bulls.

Businesses may be held liable in more situations than they know

Businesses in Philadelphia should be wary of the many dangers that could affect customers and other at-risk individuals. Some worry about a potential slip and fall accident, which is much more common than many believe.
