Middlesex County, NJ Dog Bite Attorney

Dog Bites

Representing NJ clients after being attacked by a dog

A dog is a wonderful addition to one’s home. They provide unconditional love and affection to those who need companionship. Many dogs become a member of the family and brighten the lives of the people they touch. Many dogs are trained well by responsible, caring owners. Unfortunately, not all dogs have the support of competent owners. Some dog owners do not train their animals or train their dog to be aggressive leading to dangerous situations. If you are bitten by a dog, you could suffer from serious injury, including ripped skin, torn tendons, devastating deformity and more. It is important to seek medical attention from a professional as soon as possible. After a medical professional tends to your needs, collect information about the dog and the owner. Collect the dog owner’s name, address, and the breed of dog that injured you. If anyone witnessed the attack, ask them for their contact info so they may be able to support your claim in the future. Do not sit idly by while the negligence of a person’s unruly animal burdens your life with mounting medical bills, lost wages, and injuries that can impact your quality of life.

Liability for a dog attack

Though most dogs are wonderful animals, the wrong owner and dog can lead to a serious situation. Many dog owners ignore the laws that are in place to keep us all safe. In a public place that permits dogs, all dogs must be leashed and the owner must retain control the whole time. If a dog was to bite you, the owner is liable for the damages that occurred because of the attack. This is even the case on private property. Unless it could be proven that the victim instigated the attack, the owner will be held responsible. New Jersey has strict laws regulating dogs, including registering dogs and keep up rabies shot information. If a dog seriously injures a person, a judge even has the discretion to pronounce the animal dangerous and decide on the matter of euthanasia.
