York Dog Park Attack Victim Hires Attorney Newell

Posted on: July 13th, 2012       Attorney Thomas Newell

On July 7, 2012, a York County dog attack victim hired Attorney Thomas J. Newell to represent her. The woman, her children and the family dog were enjoying a spring day at the John Rudy Dog Park in York County. The defendants’ dog was aggressive, unrestrained and unsupervised.

The York PA dog bite victim decided it was prudent to leash her dog and remove him from the volatile situation. As she was on her knees hooking her dog onto its leash, the defendants’ mixed breed dog attacked her from behind. She sustained dog bite wounds to her right arm that required stitches which were administered at Memorial Hospital.

The fact that the defendants were in a dog park does not give them a free pass to violate the PA Dog Law and not have their dog under control. If you or a loved one have been attacked by a dog, call Attorney Thomas J. Newell at 800-980-4842 to schedule a free home visit. See his website: PADogAttackLawyer.com.
