You can have peace of mind with the right lawyer in your corner.
How to Recover From a Dog Bite in New Jersey
New Jersey uses a strict liability dog attack law. To recover financially from your dog bite, you will file a claim against the dog’s owner. All pet owners in the state will be liable for injuries and damages their dogs cause, whether or not they were negligent. Even if this was the first time the dog bit someone and the owner had no reason to suspect vicious propensities, New Jersey’s strict liability statute holds the owner accountable. The dog owner’s homeowners insurance company should pay for damages since pets are technically property.
If the insurance company fails to offer an award you believe is reasonable based on your past and projected future losses, your attorney can negotiate for a better price. Your lawyer can help prove your damages through medical records, police reports and eyewitness accounts. Should insurance negotiations fail to result in fair compensation, your lawyer can bring your dog bite injury case to court in Burlington County. An injury trial may be necessary to receive maximum recovery for your serious losses.
At Console & Associates PC, we do not believe you should have to pay for your damages after a dog attack in New Jersey. We can help you combat potential defenses such as trespassing, comparative fault or provocation of the animal to achieve top results. The award you may be able to recover could pay for many different losses.
