Pennsylvania Lawyers For Dog Bite Victims
There is nothing funny about a dog bite. Dogs’ teeth can cause serious and permanent injuries, and the scars can last a lifetime and require multiple surgeries and treatments.
If you have been bitten by a dog, you should seek immediate medical attention. Even a minor bite can become infected and cause medical problems that could take weeks or even months to heal. In the most serious case, a dog may have rabies – a viral disease that infects the central nervous system and could threaten your life if left untreated.

If you have been injured due to a pet owner’s negligence, we can help you recover money damages for your medical care and lost income, as well as pain and suffering resulting from the attack.
