Dog Bite Attorney in York

Filing Your Dog Bite Claim

Dog owners can be found legally liable when their dangerous dog bites or attacks innocent people. Whether the dog injured the victim while they were lawfully on the dog owner's property, or if the dog attacked the victim unprovoked and while running loose, wandering the neighborhood or while on public property, the dog's owner can be held financially and legally liable for all economic and non-economic damages incurred by the victim.

In many cases a dog bite will occur while someone is visiting their friends or family, or on public property. Unfortunately small children are at the greatest risk of dog bite injuries because of their small stature. When children are bitten and attacked by dogs, most of their injuries are to the face, neck, and head areas. When children are attacked by a dangerous dog, they can suffer permanent scarring and disfigurement, not to mention serious psychological effects from the incident.

Your Right to File a Personal Injury Claim

While dogs have long been known as man's best friend, we have to remember that they are still animals with animal instincts. Whether the dog never bit before, or if the dog had a history of biting, it is still the dog's owner's responsibility to keep their animal contained and others safe from injury.

Whenever a dog bites or otherwise injures someone in a public place, or when the victim is lawfully on the owner's property, then the victim has the right to pursue the dog's owner for damages. In most cases a dog bite claim is filed against the homeowner's property insurance policy. However, if the attack took place in a public place; for example, at a retail store, then a claim may be filed against the store owner's insurance or the leaseholder's insurance.
