PA Dog Attack Lawyer Garners Legal Precedent
On July 1, 2014, a 6 page judicial decision in favor of a dog bite
victim’s rights was filed on case #2013-CV-11100 in the Dauphin
County Court of Common Pleas. Pennsylvania dog attack lawyer,
Thomas J. Newell, had successfully argued that the PA Dog Law
permitted strict liability claims for all PA dog bite victims seeking to
be reimbursed for their medical expenses.
DOG ATTACK FACTS
In his Complaint filed on December 19, 2013, Attorney Newell
alleged that his client had been attacked by 3 boxers on 11/21/12. She was delivering a
Federal Express package when the pack of dogs surrounded her and bit her several
times on her lower torso.
The defense attorney filed Preliminary Objections on 1/13/14 and Oral Argument took
place on May 16, 2014 in front of Judge William T. Tully. Attorney Newell successfully
argued that Section 459-502(b)(1) of the PA Dog Law imposed strict liability on the part
of dog owners whose pets attacked humans.
To the best of Attorney Newell’s knowledge, this is the first decision in Pennsylvania that
mandates strict liability on a dog owner in a civil case for personal injuries.
