Northampton PA Pit Bull Attack Victim Consults with Attorney Newell

Posted on: September 14th, 2012       Attorney Thomas Newell

On Sept. 10, 2012, a Northampton PA pit bull-mixed breed dog attack victim contacted Attorney Newell to speak with him regarding a recent dog attack. The victim was performing some painting duties at a home when he asked permission to go inside the house to use the bathroom.

The homeowner’s daughter gave him permission and as he was about to enter the restroom, the pit bull-mixed breed dog bit his right hand. The Lehigh Valley resident later found out about the dog’s prior vicious propensities. It had bitten 2 people prior to the attack on him. He was told that because of the dog’s prior attacks, it was normally restrained in a locked room when guests were present.
