Dog Bite Lawyer Near Atlantic City

Dog owners in southern New Jersey are held strictly liable for injuries that result when their dog bites another person. The old saying “every dog is entitled to one bite” does not apply in NJ, and therefore, New Jersey state law makes a dog owner responsible for all injuries caused by a dog bite. This includes:

  • MEDICAL BILLS
  • LOSS OF INCOME
  • COMPENSATION FOR DISABILITY AND SCARRING
  • COMPENSATION FOR PAIN AND SUFFERING

New Jersey also requires that dog owners take reasonable steps to control their dogs and avoid injuries other than dog bites. For example, allowing a dog to run loose without a leash may cause potential hazard to pedestrians, bicyclists, and adults and children who may be knocked over by the dog.

You may ask yourself - Why would I need an attorney if dog owners are strictly liable for dog bites?
The answer is simple. Each case is unique in that the main issue boils down to the extent of damages suffered.

Dog Bite Attorney Near Atlantic City

EACH NEW JERSEY DOG BITE CASE IS COMPRISED OF TWO SEPARATE PARTS:

  1. PROOF OF LEGAL LIABILITY
  2. ESTABLISHING DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE RESPONSIBLE PERSON OR COMPANY

In the vast majority of Atlantic City dog bite cases, the most significant question is the extent of the injury and damages, including ongoing residuals which can be permanent and affect you for the rest of your life. It is not enough for someone to say that "I am injured". Damages must be proved within the legal rules of evidence by medical documentation and witnesses. A NJ dog bite lawyer will collect all the evidence needed to support your claim, including all the details surrounding the dog bite incident, the extent of the injuries suffered, and the effects of the injuries on your life.
