Advocating For Dog Bite Victims
The law in New Jersey provides strong rights to the victims of dog bites and animal attacks. If you or someone you love has been bitten or attacked, you probably have the right to compensation. We have the experience and resources to investigate these cases and help you assess your rights and options.
New Jersey has a strict liability statute regarding dog bites and animal attacks. Even if the dog in question has never shown any signs of violence in the past, the dog’s owner can be held responsible for his or her dog’s actions.
Through all the concerns of liability, it is important to remember that dog bites can result in serious injuries. Children are most often the victims of dog bites, and these incidents can result in injuries with long-lasting effects, including disfigurement. Our experienced personal injury attorneys will make sure your compensation reflects all applicable damages, including:
- Medical bills
- Lost time from work
- Reconstructive surgery
- Visible scarring
- Nerve damage and other physical injuries
- Rabies inoculations (as a precaution)
- Emotional trauma and subsequent fear of dogs
It is not necessary to receive an actual bite wound to pursue compensation. Dog owners are also liable for injuries caused when their pets knock a person down or chase someone.
