Last week the 10 year old daughter of a Philadelphia police officer was attacked by a pit bull in Mayfair. The child was taken to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children for treatment of bite injuries and a head injury. She was reported to be in stable condition in the days following the dog bite accident.
The dog and its owner have not yet been identified to Philadelphia Police.
As a lawyer for injury victims in Pennsylvania, I understand how dangerous dog bites can be and I encourage the dog’s owner to come forward to local authorities. I also wish the child a full and fast recovery from her injuries.
