Attorney Newell Hired By Bucks County Pit Bull Mauling Victim

Posted on: March 18th, 2013       Attorney Thomas Newell

On March 9, 2013, the mother of a 7 year-old Bucks County pit bull attack victim hired Attorney Thomas J. Newell to represent her son.  Five days earlier, the child was playing outside their Bensalem Township apartment when he was mauled by a pit bull.  He sustained a severe wound to his mouth which required 7 stitches to close.

PIT BULL #11Attorney Newell provided a free home consultation.  He has since contacted the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the Bensalem Township Animal Control Officer.  It is unclear if the negligent pit bull owner has renter’s insurance.  Unfortunately, Pennsylvania does not require pit bull owners to have liability insurance coverage.
