Pittsburgh Dog Bite Lawyer
In Pittsburgh, dog owners are required to maintain reasonable control over their animal at all times. This means that dogs must either be leased or confined to a specific property to help prevent straying. When a dog’s owner fails to control his or her animal – even when the failure occurs on their property – they may be liable for all associated damages.

Common Law Liability
When a dog bite results in serious personal injury in Pennsylvania, victims are entitled to hold the owner liable for medical expenses along with associated economic and noneconomic damages. This is the case even when the dog has not been deemed dangerous due to previous attacks.
If the dog has been determined to be dangerous due to a history of attacking people or other animals, damages are often much higher. In some cases, the owners of dangerous dogs may be held criminally liable, but those actions will be taken in addition to your personal injury lawsuit and will not impact the outcome of your case.
