Dog Bites

If you have been bit by a dog, New Jersey law entitles you to recover from the owner of the dog, regardless of whether or not the dog has a prior history of attacks or violence, if you were on public property or legally on the owner's property. If you or someone you know has been the victim of a dog bite, we can help get you the medical treatment and compensation you need.

Dog bites can cause serious injuries leaving disfiguring scars, causing permanent nerve and tissue damage and requiring costly and invasive medical procedures. We understand that dog bites can be extremely traumatic and we have the experience necessary to explain your rights and options under New Jersey law and to make sure you can afford the treatment necessary to make as full of a recovery as possible. We also are familiar with the permanent residuals of dog bites and can help to ensure that you are compensated for the full value of the harm done to you.

New Jersey Strict Liability Statute

Under New Jersey law, a dog owner is responsible for injuries his/her dog causes to an innocent victim regardless of the dog's history or propensity for violence. While this law may appear harsh to dog owners, it is important to understand that most homeowner's insurance provides coverage for dog bites.
