Yes. Because your son is a minor, you can still file suit even though it has been over 2 years since the attack. Pennsylvania has a two-year statute of limitations for negligence cases, including dog attack cases. Generally, a lawsuit must be filed within two years of the attack. However, if the victim is a minor, the suit can be filed within two years of the victim’s eighteenth birthday.
Your son should not have to suffer because of someone's negligence. If he needs future medical care, there will be medical expenses that need to be paid. These expenses can be recovered from the responsible party.
