On August 27, 2012, a woman in Salisbury, PA, was bitten by her neighbor's dog when she was walking a child to a bus stop.  The owner of the dog lost control of the leash, and the dog attacked the woman.

The dog attack is currently under investigation by Salisbury Township Animal Control.

Thankfully, the woman was not seriously hurt, and the dog did not attack the child.

This type of situation often happens to my clients who were attacked or bitten by a dog.  The owner of the dog did not have control of the leash, and the dog attacked and injured my client.

In Pennsylvania, there is a "leash law," which requires the owners to keep their dogs under proper and adequate control.

Therefore, victims who are attacked by unleashed dogs may have a claim against the dog owner.

Injuries from dog bites and attacks can leave permanent physical scarring and even emotional trauma.  Some develop anxiety, and others develop panic attacks around dogs, fearing they will be attacked again.

If you were attacked by a dog or if your child was bitten by a dog, feel free to contact our PA dog bite injury lawyers for more information about your right to recover damages.
