On July 26,2012, Attorney Thomas J. Newell learned that a PA pit bull attack victim may need hand surgery due to ongoing nerve problems.   The Allegheny County resident was injured on the streets of McKeesport PA when she tried to rescue her Shih Tzu as it was being attacked by a pit bull.  Approximately 15 stitches were needed to close the hand lacerations.  She is still dealing with numbness and/or a tingling sensation in her injured hand.
