Man’s best buddy is often used to describe dogs. While many dog owners consider their pets to be members of their families, any dog has the potential to snap and bite or attack someone else, frequently without apparent cause or warning. Even little canines are capable of biting humans and causing life-threatening conditions. The delicate head and neck region of young children is more accessible to a dog’s mouth, and youngsters and old individuals may lack the strength to repel an attacking dog, making them particularly prone to suffering catastrophic injuries from dog bites and attacks. If you were bitten or attacked by someone else’s dog and had injuries as a result, you may be entitled to financial compensation to cover the cost of your medical care, recovery, and any lost wages or earning potential.

Common Questions Regarding Dog Bites In New Jersey

Will my insurance cover my dog bite injury?

I was bitten by a friend or family member’s dog, but I don’t want to bring legal action against them. What shall I do?

It is totally fair that you might not want to risk jeopardizing your personal relationship by taking a friend, neighbor, or member of your family to court to seek recompense for yourself. You should be aware that the homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy held by the owner of the dog that bit you handles and pays out on the majority of dog bite injury claims. Your neighbor, acquaintance, or relative is covered by insurance to guard against liability and financial loss. You will be compensated for your injury by the insurance company, not by your neighbor, friend, or family member.

What must I demonstrate in a dog bite lawsuit?

In cases involving dog bites, New Jersey is regarded as a “strict responsibility” state. This means that, unlike some other states, you do not have to prove that the person who owned the dog that bit you knew it was dangerous or vicious (usually because it had previously bitten someone else) or that they did not take reasonable precautions to keep it under control and prevent harm to others (such as by keeping the dog behind adequate fencing or keeping the dog on a leash or muzzle). You only need to demonstrate that you were legally in a public or private area when you were bitten by a dog and that your injuries and damages qualify you for financial compensation.

How much do attorneys charge?

When clients meet with attorneys, the cost of getting good legal representation causes them a lot of anxiety. It makes sense that way. But because The Epstein Law Firm, P.A. doesn’t get paid until you get paid, we always work to secure the maximum compensation for your injuries.
