Injury accident attorneys represent victims who have been badly hurt in all kinds of accidents. One type of accident which may require the assistance of a personal injury lawyer is a dog bite or other injury inflicted by a dog.
While any breed of dog can hurt anyone at any time, it is important to be especially careful of pit bulls around children. In just the last few weeks, a 12-year-old Harrisburg boy was attacked by a pitbull. He suffered a leg injury and the need for painful rabies shots. Earlier this spring Harrisburg police had to shoot and kill two pit bulls that were threatening children.
If you, or your child, have been injured by a pit bull or any other animal then you may have a cause of action against the animal’s owner. Please contact a personal injury lawyer for more information about your rights and potential recovery.
