On Oct. 19, 2012, Attorney Thomas J. Newell filed a lawsuit in Chester County PA Court of Common Pleas on behalf of a West Chester PA pit bull attack victim.  The 10 page Complaint alleged that a four year old girl was attacked by the defendant’s 2 pit bull mixed breed dogs at a family party.

The pit bulls had a history of prior vicious propensities – which background was known to their owner.  The pit bulls had previously attacked and injured another dog.  The Chester County pit bull attack victim suffered lacerations and dog bite wounds to her head and neck that required staples and stitches to close.

Attorney Newell’s Complaint included claims that the defendant violated the PA Dog Law, as well as a count for punitive damages.  If you or a loved one have been attacked by a dog in PA, call 1-800-980-4842 ASAP to set up your free home consultation with Attorney Newell.  Please visit his website:
