Trauma From A Dog Bite? Let A Skilled New Jersey Law Firm Represent You

Last updated on August 28, 2020

An afternoon visit to your friend’s home took a sudden and frightening turn when a dog bit your child. The startled animal that belonged to your friend was abruptly awakened by your 3-year-old, and it bit him in the face. Screams, tears, comfort and a trip to the emergency room followed. Your child may face a series of painful reconstruction surgeries.

It’s time to contact a skilled personal injury attorney. Laufer, Dalena, Jensen, Bradley & Doran, LLC, of Morristown, New Jersey, is a compassionate, empathetic and understanding law firm that knows the hardship facing you and your child.

Dog Owners In New Jersey Are Liable

An injury from a dog bite can inflict great physical and emotional trauma. Some of the more common and serious dog bite injuries include:

  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Infections
  • Damage to bones, nerves and tendons
  • Psychological trauma
  • Potential transmission of rabies

New Jersey is a strict liability state regarding dog bites. That means an animal’s owner is liable for damages regardless of if he or she was careless or negligent. Victims simply must prove the bite incident took place. New Jersey law works in your favor, but you should still hire an attorney. We will negotiate on your behalf, provide the legal guidance you need and explain the available legal options.
