New Jersey Dog Bite Lawyer

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur in the United States each year. In New Jersey, dog bite cases are governed by the Dog Bite Statute. This law states that if a dog bites someone, the dog’s owner is liable for compensating the victim for any damage caused by this bite, whether the victim was on public property or legally on private property.  

Even if there was no dog bite, owners may still be held liable for any other injuries due to a dog attack. In short, if you were in a public place or lawfully in a private place at the time of the attack, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit for the dog attack.
