Protecting Victims of Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

In both Delaware and Pennsylvania, there are statutes governing the liability of dog owners for injuries sustained when their pets attack others. In both states, there are situations in which dog owners will be held responsible even in the absence of negligence if it can be shown that they owned the dog and the dog caused physical injury.

We provide comprehensive counsel to people who have suffered any type of injury in an attack by a vicious dog or other domestic animal. We have a comprehensive understanding of the laws of Delaware and Pennsylvania governing the liability of dog owners for the actions of their pets. We will carefully investigate the facts and circumstances of your case, traveling to the scene of the attack if necessary.

We will help you pursue all the damages to which you are entitled, including claims for lost wages, medical bills, physical pain and suffering, scarring or permanent disfigurement, and psychological trauma. We handle all types of injury claims, from cuts or bruising to broken bones, from scarring and disfigurement to eye injuries or loss of fingers or toes.
