Dogs have powerful jaws, and their bites can cause very serious injuries. These include lacerations, puncture wounds, broken bones, eye injuries, facial injuries and injuries to the head and neck. Wounds can be infected, and victims can be left with scars. Severe bites can also result in torn muscles and nerve damage.
A dog attack can have a significant impact on victims. In addition to the physical injuries, they can suffer emotional and psychological effects. They are also impacted financially. The medical expenses for treatment can soon become overwhelming. Some victims are forced to miss work and suffer a loss of income.
Our Lawyers Fight The Insurance Companies On Your Behalf
Recovering financial compensation after a dog attack can be difficult. It may hard to track down the owner of the dog. Owners often don’t accept responsibility for the attack and may deny it was their dog that attacked you. Insurance companies aren’t much help. They may dispute your claim to try to pay you as little as possible.
Dog attack cases can be complicated. That’s why you need an experienced premises liability attorney on your side. We have been helping the injured throughout New Jersey since our firm was founded in 1927. Our lawyers know how to fight the insurance companies and hold negligent dog owners accountable.
We investigate to find out what really happened. Our legal team gathers evidence and documentation, such as police reports and medical records. We identify any witnesses to the attack and interview them about what they saw. If needed, we consult with experts who can help us understand what happened.
Helping You Recover The Compensation You Deserve
Our attorneys know how to build strong cases that force the insurance company to take you seriously. When insurance companies see that we can prove liability and are ready to take them to court, they often agree to talk about settling your case. We’re only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs.
We seek compensation for all the damages that you have suffered in the attack. This includes compensation for all medical expenses related to your injuries – both now and in the future. It includes compensation for any lost wages if you were unable to work. It may include compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering.
If you were injured in a dog attack, it’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible. Under New Jersey law, you have two years from the date of the attack to take legal action. That sounds like a long time, but it is important to start investigating as soon as we can before evidence is lost or destroyed and before the memories of witnesses start to fade.
