Another Uninsured/Irresponsible Dog Owner

Posted on: May 1st, 2014       Attorney Thomas Newell

PA dog bite lawyer, Thomas J. Newell, was referred to a Luzerne County dog attack victim by another personal injury attorney. On March 11, 2014, the retired gentleman was walking on a sidewalk adjacent to his Nanticoke, PA home. The property next to his was in a neglectful state and was inhabited by a renter with an aggressive pit bull.


On this day, the unleashed & unrestrained pit bull got loose and attacked the victim without any provocation. The PA dog attack victim instinctively threw up his right arm to protect his face. The pit bull attack left him with a badly injured right hand. Surgery was needed, a pin was implanted in his ring finger and dozens of stitches were used to close the dog bite wounds.

The tenant/pit bull owner has ignored all of Attorney Newell’s letters and was recently jailed for charges alleging that he was selling drugs. As of this date, there does not appear to be any liability insurance coverage available to compensate the Luzerne County dog bite victim.
