Chambersburg PA Pit Bull Attack

Posted on: December 14th, 2013       Attorney Thomas Newell

On 12/12/13, a Franklin County pit bull attack victim received a free consultation from PA dog bite lawyer, Thomas J. Newell, Esquire.  The young man had been walking on the sidewalk adjacent to Oak Street in Chambersburg when he was bitten by a passing pit bull.  A woman was walking the pit bull in the opposite direction with a leash and collar.  Attorney Newell’s opinion was that there were no PA Dog Law violations since the pit bull was reasonably restrained and the dog did not exhibit any signs of anger or viciousness prior to the dog bite attack.
