Animal Attack & Dog Bite Lawyer

Winning Animal Attack & Dog Bite Attorney Based in Philadelphia

Dogs and other animals can be some of the most rewarding additions to a family. They provide unconditional love, companionship, and in some cases, protection. No matter how good a dog or animal is, it is still on the owner to ensure that the animal is properly trained or restrained to avoid endangering you or a loved one. When an animal or dog attacks, it can cause severe physical damage, emotional trauma, and even death. If you or a loved one has been injured by an animal, it’s time to contact the animal and dog bite lawyers at Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Holloway. We know how to identify all the parties responsible and hold them accountable for the incident to win you the justice you deserve. 


Who is Held Responsible for Animal and Dog Bite Attacks?

You may think that when there is an animal or dog bite attack, there is only one person responsible—the owner of the dog. While the owner is liable for any injuries and damages resulting from the animal’s misconduct, it’s possible that other parties are also responsible for any pain or suffering you or a loved one experienced. Responsible parties include: 

  • Animal or Dog Owner:
    Whether an animal is considered a family member or security, it must be trained and restrained appropriately, or there must be notice placed to ensure anyone in the home or on the premises knows the risk involved with being there. When these steps are not taken, you or a loved one can be injured or worse.
  • Property Owner:
    Liability for animal attacks and dog bites goes beyond just the owner, especially when a property is left unsecured. If your safety is threatened, and an attack happens because a property owner does not provide adequate security, they can be held just as liable as the dog’s owner in court. 

Millions of bites occur every year, many of which require medical attention. A fraction of these attacks actually lead to the death of the victim. In the cases of dog attack-related deaths in 2020 alone, one-third of the deaths involved children under nine years old, with the majority of those children being under 2 years of age. When the victim survives the attack, the resulting medical expenses can result in hundreds of thousands of dollars, and it’s possible the victim won’t even be able to return to work or live a normal life. With so much on the line, it’s important to have a team of animal and dog attack lawyers who can find every person responsible for the devastating injuries, including scarring, disfigurement, or death of a loved one. Our team at Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Holloway leave no stone unturned when it comes to investigating your case and bringing you the financial compensation and justice you deserve.
