Know your legal rights when bitten by a dog

On Behalf of | Apr 22, 2016 | Animal Bites

There are an incredibly large number of people who are victims of dog bites each year in the United States and New Jersey is no exception. Unfortunately, many people who are victims of these attacks do not seek out compensation for their injuries; this may be because they do not know that they may be able to recover costs associated with dog bite injuries. Consider this: legislation in New Jersey states that owners of dogs or other animals that bite or attack are legally responsible for injuries to others caused by their animal.

Serious injury can often result from a dog attack. This can lead to great expenses for you in the form of lost wages and medical expenses, as well as an emotional impact on you and your family. Whether you have experienced a loss of income due to missed work, medical expenses incurred from a treatment for dog attack injuries, pain and suffering as a result of the attack, or even property damage, you should be compensated.

To ensure you are appropriately and fairly compensated, it is important to find representation after you are a victim of an animal attack. An attorney may be able to ensure a full understanding of the situation, help to determine liability and ensure you are properly compensated.

If you or a family member has suffered an animal attack, you may want to seek compensation. To make sure you get the best lawyer to represent you, seek someone who has experience and knowledge in this area. There are attorneys who specialize in dog bite injuries that can help you receive the recovery you deserve.
