Dog Bite Lawyers in Harrisburg

Protecting & Fighting for Victims of Animal Attacks

Suffering a dog bite or animal attack can result in lacerations, scarring, loss of a limb, and more. In addition to the physical injury, many victims also suffer emotional trauma that may haunt them for the rest of their lives. At Shaffer & Engle, our attorneys are extensively experienced in asserting the rights of dog bite and animal attack victims to pursue maximum compensation. You may be able to recover compensation from a negligent dog owner, landlord, property owner, or homeowners' insurance carrier if you have suffered from an injury.

Even if you are not certain you want to pursue a claim, you can consult with an attorney at our firm. Call (717) 268-4287 to schedule a free consultation with our Harrisburg dog bite lawyers.

Holding Pet Owners Accountable

Negligent dog owners are held liable for injuries caused by unleashed pets and dangerous animals. When you or someone you love has been bitten, it is important to take immediate action to protect your rights and help maximize compensation for your injuries. Our attorneys will take immediate action on behalf of dog bite victims who have suffered facial scarring, lacerations, amputations, and other injuries resulting from animal attacks.

If you or someone you love has suffered a dog bite, you should take the following steps:

  • Visit a medical professional
  • Take pictures of the bite and any injuries
  • Contact an attorney to review your rights
  • Identify the dog and its owner, if at all possible
  • Contact animal control or your local police department

Many children suffer severe disfigurement and scarring as a result of dog bites and animal attacks. Our Harrisburg dog bite lawyers are committed to aggressively advocating on behalf of you and your child in any dog bite or attack case.
