Were You Attacked By A Dog?

Few incidents resulting in injury are as traumatizing as an attack by a dog or other animal, and the resulting injuries are not always only skin-deep. In addition to cosmetic or facial scarring that may occur, emotional and psychological scarring may also occur, leading to debilitating fears.

At the Butler, Pennsylvania law firm of Conlon Tarker, P.C., we are committed to exploring all avenues of compensation in animal injuries and attacks and other premises liability cases. Contact us today.

Dog Bite Law In Pennsylvania:

  • Pennsylvania, at the state and the local level, does have specific laws governing the liability of the owner of an aggressive dog. Leash laws, licensing, and other issues arise in this context, and it is essential to understand the process and act quickly after an attack to notify the pertinent state dog officer. The attorneys at Conlon Tarker, P.C. have experience in these matters and can act immediately to preserve your rights.
  • Simply being bitten by a dog does not necessarily mean that you will obtain compensation. However, with our knowledge in this area of the law, you can rest assured that we will examine the facts of the incident, conduct a thorough investigation, and inform you of Pennsylvania’s various dog bite and animal attack laws to help you determine if you have a case. If you do, we will be there for you to pursue it to conclusion.

Obtaining Complete Compensation:

  • Although it surprises some, most homeowner’s insurance policies provide coverage for the animal owner in the event of an animal attack. Still, identifying the owner, presenting the claim, negotiating with the insurance company, and preserving the evidence necessary to pursue your rights are difficult to manage when you are focused on your own medical recovery or that of a loved one. Our attorneys apply their tremendous experience in handling personal injury cases to relieve you of these burdens so you can embrace the healing process while knowing that your rights are being protected.
  • Often dog attacks and bites result in injury and facial scarring. In helping you obtain fair compensation for your injuries, we examine every possible aspect of your injury. Let us help you obtain compensation for medical costs, cosmetic surgical procedures, loss of work and psychological rehabilitation.

At Conlon Tarker, P.C., we believe in performance, not promises. If you require experienced legal assistance after a dog bite or animal attack, contact our firm today. We offer free consultations and do not collect a fee unless you are compensated for your injuries. Call 888.312.5366 or 724.602.4317.
