Although it is still chilly in the Allentown area, summer will be here before you know it. Enjoying outdoor activities in warmer weather is fun for everyone and bicycle riding is popular among all age groups. However, bike riding comes with risks.

Proving fault when dog owners know their pets are dangerous

Many times, pet attacks in the Allentown region seem to come from nowhere. The victims, and even animal owners, may be minding their own business when the pet bites, mauls or otherwise attacks.
