Thousands of Americans — young children in particular — are injured each year in dog attacks. Under New Jersey law, pet owners are strictly liable for these wounds. That means an individual does not have to prove a dog owner was negligent or that the animal was vicious in order to seek compensation.

  • Past and future medical bills, including cosmetic and reconstructive surgery
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Following a Dog Attack or Bite

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the breeds considered most likely to attack or fatally wound are pit bulls and Rottweilers. A chained dog is more likely to bite than an unchained dog.

Regardless of the circumstances of your attack, it is prudent to gather as much evidence as you can once you have received appropriate medical care. This will help the lawyer on your case create the strongest argument possible on your behalf. Consider taking note or keeping a record of:

  • The dog owner’s name and address
  • The dog owner’s insurance company
  • Names and addresses of those who may have witnessed the attack
  • The place where the attack occurred
  • Evaluation of your wounds by a physician
