Dog Owners Are Legally Responsible For Damages
It doesn’t matter if the animal was vicious, or if the owner knew that the dog was a biter. According to New Jersey law, dog owners are held strictly liable when their dogs bite and injure others.
To obtain financial compensation in a New Jersey dog bite injury claim, you must prove that:
- The dog bit you.
- The defendant owned the dog.
- You were in a public place or legally on the dog owner’s property at the time of the incident.
Dog attacks injure approximately 4.7 million people in the U.S. every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Unfortunately, young children suffer dog bite injuries more than people in any other age group.
Serious And Sometimes Deadly
Dog bites can result in serious injuries and complications, including:
- Puncture wounds
- Broken bones
- Loss of sight
- Loss of hearing
- Blood poisoning
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Head injuries from falls caused by the attack
Dog bite injuries can require multiple surgeries, including plastic surgery, to repair the damage. Injury victims may also require counseling services to cope with the psychological consequences of the trauma. Sadly, every year dog bites result in fatalities.
Our lawyers represent people who have been injured by other types of animal attacks. Whether you were bitten by a neighbor’s cat or kicked by a horse at a stable, it is important to discuss your case with an experienced attorney.
