Owner Liability for Dog Bites
There is a lot of misinformation about the responsibility of dog owners for their pets. However, the New Jersey law is clear. Dog owners have strict liability regarding injuries caused by their dogs. If you or someone you love has been bitten or attacked by a dog, you can hold the owner of that dog responsible for your injuries.
At the law offices of Scura, Wigfield, Heyer & Stevens, LLP, our NJ personal injury attorneys can help you get the full compensation you deserve. New Jersey dog bite laws are clear, but many people fail to take legal action, because they do not understand the scope of their rights.
Take Action to Enforce Dog Bite Liability
There are a number of things you can do after your dog bite to make sure you get the fair and full compensation you deserve. The more you do to document your injury with evidence, the stronger your claim will be. Take a photograph of the injury while it is fresh and make sure the victim gets medical treatment as soon as possible.
Dog bites often lead to heavy scarring, which can be very damaging, especially if the attack occurred to the face or any easily visible part of the body. Our attorneys will make sure you have access to the proper medical attention you need, today and well into the future. If you are in need of psychological counseling, we will make sure that is taken care of as well.
The Laws Are Clear, and There Is Strict Liability
When it comes to dog bites and animal attacks, make no mistake: There is strict liability. There are no "free bites" for New Jersey pet owners. We are ready to answer any questions you may have about your rights and clear up any possible misinformation.
