For the most part, dogs are a wonderful companion for people and are often even considered part of the family. With that said, it is important to keep in mind that dogs are animals with instincts that sometimes surpass the training given by their owners. Dog owners are responsible for making sure their pets are contained for safety purposes. When a dog attacks a person, they can cause significant harm that can result in lifelong injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a dog bite attack, it is important to consider your legal options. You may be entitled to compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial burdens.

Dog Bite Laws in Pennsylvania
If you are a dog owner in Pennsylvania, it is important that you are aware of your legal obligations and how you may be held responsible if your dog causes harm to another person. In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, a dog’s owner can be held liable for an attack if they knew that their dog had vicious tendencies and subsequently failed to keep the dog adequately under their control. Some of the ways that a dog owner in Pennsylvania can make sure they take proper steps to control their dog include having a fenced in property in accordance with the state guidelines as well as making sure that the dog is appropriately restrained while in public. A dog’s owner can be held liable for an attack if he or she fails to meet the legal requirements to keep the dog under control, such as allowing it to run loose in the neighborhood. It is also important to note that if you have been injured in a dog bite attack, you will be required to fulfill the burden of proof that shows that the dog owner was negligent. It can be challenging to prove that a dog’s owner is negligent, so it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who can assess your situation and help you present evidence to prove your case.
