Philadelphia Dog Bite & Animal Attack Injuries

When You Have Been Hurt by a Domestic Animal

Have you or your child been attacked by a neighbor's dog? Do you have permanent scarring from an animal attack? Is your child terrified of other dogs after an unprovoked attack?

Our Representation of Dog Bite and Animal Attack Victims

Though pit bulls, Rottweilers and Akitas are the breeds that get the most public attention, any dog can be dangerous if not properly trained or restrained. We handle cases involving any type of domesticated animal and are familiar with all laws and special ordinances regarding particular breeds or animals. Unfortunately, because certain types of dogs have a reputation for being aggressive or vicious, their owners will encourage that type of behavior. The consequences of this can be disastrous, from scarring and permanent disfigurement to accidental or wrongful death. We handle all types of claims involving injuries caused by dogs or other domestic animals, including:
  • Injuries sustained in a mauling, or from bites or scratches
  • Injuries sustained when you are knocked down by an unleashed or unrestrained dog or other animal
  • Injuries caused by horse bites, falls from a horse or car accidents involving horses on the roadway
Because of our experience handling these types of claims, we know that these incidents are customarily covered by the animal owner's homeowner insurance policy. We will work to identify all sources of compensation, so that you get benefits to cover all your losses.
