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

Children & Animal Bites

Children are frequently the victims of serious dog bites. They are often more curious with unfamiliar dogs and more vulnerable to animal attacks. 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.

  • You believed in me and gave me the courage to tell the jury my side of the story

    “I can't thank you enough for giving me my life back! Everyone told me I should just plead guilty but I knew I didn't do what they said I did. You believed in me and gave me the courage to tell the jury my side of the story and explain why I signed a confession when I never committed that crime. I was very scared during the trial but I felt good knowing you believed in me. I am a free man today because of you. God bless you.”

  • Jeff advised me appropriately and always responded to my calls promptly.

    “At the law offices of Shaffer & Engle, my case was handled with professionalism, compassion, and dedication. Facing criminal charges was a very frightening experience to me, but I knew I was in good hands with Jeff Engle. I had no past experiences with the judicial system. I felt I was treated with courtesy and dignity. Jeff did everything within his legal powers to provide a great service when I was in need. From my experience with Jeff, he has been more than a lawyer; he is now considered a great new friend of my family. He took a personal interest in my case and for that I am eternally grateful. Jeff always delivered on what he said to me and did everything he set out to do. Jeff fought the prosecutor (DA) every step of the way without hesitation. Jeff advised me appropriately and always responded to my calls promptly. What could have been a truly awful situation was resolved completely to my satisfaction. I am available at any time to address any questions with respect to Jeff Engle as an attorney or as a person. I hold him in the highest regard. If anyone ever wanted to see the definition of what a true attorney is...they should be able to open up a dictionary and see a picture of Jeff next to it. I would and will recommend him and his law firm to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and aggressive law firm or criminal defense attorney.”

Saving us from a driver's license suspension of up to 18 months long! We recommend Shaffer & Engle to everyone and anyone, even if you are unsure if you have a case. Just ask them, they will explain all of your options and in plain English so that it makes sense to you! It gave us a more comfortable feeling having them represent us and our case! Again, Thank you so much, we greatly appreciate all you did for us! We will call Shaffer & Engle first for all of our future legal matters!”

  • He has a great personality and makes you feel welcome and comfortable.

    “Mr. Engle took our case and worked diligently from the time we hired his firm until our case was resolved. In addition he kept us well informed throughout the process with emails, letters, and phone conversations. I have worked with a number of law firms in the past 10 plus years and Attorney Engle is one of the best. He does not make you feel as if you are a burden to him when you ask questions. He has a great personality and makes you feel welcome and comfortable. He makes no promises due to the fact he is not a fortune teller but he will do everything possible to have a positive outcome for your case. I recommend Attorney Engle and his Law Firm and hold nothing but positive praise for him and his team.”
