Who Is at Fault in Dog Attacks?

Who Is at Fault in Dog Attacks?

Handling Personal Injury Cases in Pennsylvania and New Jersey for 30 Years

A key question in most personal injury cases is “who was at fault”? This question is important because the question of fault will likely determine who is owed and who owes financial compensation for losses.

Fault in dog bite cases varies from state to state. In some states, dog owners are responsible for injuries caused by their dogs. Period. In other states, injured parties may need to demonstrate that specific negligence or carelessness on the part of the dog owner led to the attack and subsequent injuries.

Attorneys John E. Kusturiss, Jr., and Alyssa K. Poole of The Law Offices of John E. Kusturiss, Jr. are experienced personal injury lawyers with 30 years of experience handling legal claims. If you or a loved one were injured in a dog attack, we can quickly determine who was at fault based on the location of the accident and the facts of the incident. We can then build a strongest-possible case and pursue the compensation you need and deserve.

If you have questions or are wondering whether you even have a case, contact us to discuss your options. We have recovered compensation in cases in comparatively clear-cut cases involving unprovoked attacks by aggressive dogs and in cases complicated by trespassing and other issues. We even successfully handled a case in which a motorcycle driver was injured when he swerved to avoid a dog that had wondered into the road.

Our membership with the exclusive Million Dollar Advocates Forum illustrates our ability to recover high-value compensation for clients following dog bites and other animal attacks in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
