Animal owners in Pennsylvania may be responsible for damages caused by their pets. If you are injured by another person's dog or other pet, the owner may be responsible for your medical bills, as well as other damages such as scars and emotional distress. However, determining the amount of these damages is often a disputed issue.

With offices in Harrisburg and Enola, we represent adults, children and elderly victims throughout central Pennsylvania. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions.
Damages Usually Covered By Homeowners Insurance
Damages in dog bite injury cases may be covered by the homeowners insurance of the animal's owner. Unfortunately, insurance companies often minimize damage claims. Our lawyers will take every effort to ensure that you receive the full compensation you deserve.
Pursuing The Full Compensation You Deserve
Damages in dog bite cases can be extensive, especially when children are attacked. Children often suffer bite wounds to the face and hands, which can leave lasting scars. Doctors often do not attempt to revise scars in children until the child has grown. As a result, a child may have to live with disfiguring scars from a bite wound for several years. Many health plans do not cover cosmetic surgery, so it is important to set aside funds now to pay for future treatment.
Our lawyers will work with medical professionals to determine the cost of future care, as well as other services such as counseling to overcome the trauma of an animal attack.
