New Jersey Dog Bite Injury Lawyers

Representing those injured by dog attacks throughout the state.

Dog bite attacks can leave injuries that are both physically and emotionally devastating to the victim. This is especially true when the dog bite victim is a child. Dog owner's in New Jersey face strict liability for any injuries their dog may cause, regardless if it is the first time their dog has bit another party or even the first time their dog exhibited aggressive biting behavior. The New Jersey state statute, N.J.S.A. 4:19-16, sets forth the legal definition and requirements for a dog owner's liability when their animal attacks a victim. Under the New Jersey state statute, dog owners are held liable for any and all injuries caused by their dog onto a person in a public place or a lawfully private place, such as the dog owner's residence or another private property the victim was explicitly welcome or granted entry to prior to the dog bite attack. 

Dog bite injuries can be both physically and mentally scarring for the victims, oftentimes resulting in long term physical and mental health care. The medical care required for dog bite victims can be financially devastating.
