Although most dogs are safe and kind; unfortunately, attacks do happen all to often. A dog bite can range from minor puncture wounds to serious disfigurement and emotional harm. Statistics show that children are the most common victims of dog attacks and that their close proximity to the height of the dog can lead to severe facial lacerations and scarring. Pennsylvania law holds dog owners and caretakers personally responsible when someone is bitten or attacked. The victim may recover monetary compensation for medical bills, post-traumatic stress disorder, pain and suffering and disfigurement.
