Pennsylvania Dog Bite Laws Were Enacted for The Victim's Protection
There are several factors that can contribute to the assumed negligence of a pet owner, and all of these factors will be considered by our personal injury attorneys. Pennsylvania courts often consider the following factors: First, did the animal have a history of violent behavior? If a pet owner is aware of a pet's tendency to attack, the owner has a duty to contain the animal. Also, did the pet owner do everything in his or her power to contain the animal, even if it did not have a history of attacking? Despite these considerations, however, our personal injury attorneys have helped Berks County, Pennsylvania clients to receive damages in animal attack cases even if the pet has had no prior history of aggression because Pennsylvania Law requires the owner have control of his animal by keeping him contained within the confines of his property or properly leashed. By having prior knowledge and evidence to support the owner's negligence, an animal attack case will be considerably stronger. Because they are common and serious, dog bites are not something to take lightly. In the 11-year period of 2005 through 2015, canines killed 360 Americans. Pit bulls contributed to 64% (232) of these deaths. Combined, pit bulls and rottweilers contributed to 76% of the total recorded deaths.
