Pet owners have certain duties, responsibilities, and obligations to others in the community. In the event that a dog owner or property owner where the pet is housed fails to properly keep an animal under control, they are responsible for the serious injuries caused. If you have been attacked by a dog, you may have a number of injuries, such as puncture wounds, abrasions, lacerations, fractures, tissue loss, and infections. You may also suffer anxiety as a result of this experience. If this has happened to you, there are provisions in Pennsylvania and New Jersey laws that protect victims and provide monetary compensation for injuries resulting from dog attacks.


The actions of pets can be unpredictable and even dangerous sometimes. Dog owners have a responsibility to train their dogs and to keep them safely restricted to a leash in public or within the parameters of the owner’s property, for both the dog’s safety and the safety of the public. When an owner fails to accomplish these duties and obligations, serious injuries can result. If such an event occurs, our greater Philadelphia area dog bite lawyers can help victims by receiving the compensation they deserve for the monetary consequences of these injuries. In most cases involving dog bite injuries, the animal owner is legally responsible for any damage or injury caused by their dog. The only exception is if a dog owner can attest that the injured party voluntarily provoked the attack by abusing, teasing, or tormenting the dog.


At Mammuth & Rosenberg, our attorneys understand the serious nature involved with injuries sustained by a canine attack. Dog bites can cause substantial medical expenses, missed work, severe pain, disfigurement, and psychological consequences. If you or someone you love has suffered injuries due to a dog bite, you should not have to endure the cost of pain caused by a negligent dog owner. The attorneys at our firm can assist you in recovering the compensation you deserve for your injuries.



Pennsylvania and New Jersey have strong laws governing dog bite liability. The laws require owners to keep reasonable control of their dogs at all times. Also, the laws require owners to confine their dogs on their premises, and restrain their dogs with a collar, chain or another device to prevent straying. The laws make dog owners explicitly liable for injuries caused by their dog biting someone, either on public property, private property, or anywhere the victim has a legal right to be. Unlike some other states, New Jersey and Pennsylvania laws hold the owner to be liable for a dog bite injury even if the dog had never had a history of previously biting someone, and even if the owner had no prior knowledge of any vicious inclinations of the dog.


The significance of these laws is that a dog owner is presumed liable for bite injuries inflicted by their dog unless the victim is trespassing at the time of the attack. The presumption is that the owner is at fault regardless of their conduct at the time of the attack. This makes it significantly easier for victims of dog bite injuries to recover compensation for their injuries.



Injuries from dog attacks can be severe, especially when they involve children. Dog bites may result in one or more of the following injuries:

  • Head and neck injuries

  • Nerve damage

  • Paralysis

  • Severe and permanent scarring

  • Emotional Damage

  • Death

  • Serious cuts requiring stitches

  • Tissue loss and avulsion
