Dog Bite Incidents Increase In Good Weather in PA

Posted by Sandra Worthington | Apr 08, 2024

As people try to escape the dreary indoors with their pets in the Spring, more dog attack cases occur.  These can take place while a dog is being walked in your neighborhood or as your dog is attacked in a dog park.  Often the injuries to humans occur when an dog owner whose dog is being attacked tries to separate dogs that are fighting.  I see this every day in my cases.  Your dog is a family member.  What would you not do to save a family member?  Many clients tell me they did not stop to worry about getting bitten when trying to save their dog from an attack.  

You may wonder whether you would have a possible case if you were bitten while intentionally inserting yourself into a dogfight to separate the dogs.  You absolutely would, if your dog was the victim of the attack.  Call Sandra Worthington at Worthington Law Group at 215-576-5150 if you were injured while trying to protect your dog (or another person including yourself) from an attacking dog.  We are happy to discuss your case with you and talk about all the complexities involved.  Call before you sign anything or give a statement to the attacking dog owner's insurance carrier.  And if you are not sure what to do, call or order our dog bite book online on our website.  Sandra Worthington has written The PA Dog Bite Book to tell you all about this kind of claim and help you understand your options. This book is FREE for dog bite victims and their families.  This offer is not available to insurance adjusters, defense counsel or employees of insurance companies.  This book is available for purchase on but is offered free by Worthington Law Group to dog bite victims.
