Dog Attack and Dog Bite Injury

Livingston Dog Bite Lawyer - Newark Dog Bite Injury Attorney,  New Jersey - Lustbader Law Firm

In New Jersey, individuals and children may be entitled to compensation for dog bite injuries or deaths. If a dog bite breaks the skin, then strict liability applies, and the dog owner is liable to compensate you for any injury or loss. There is no “one bite” rule in New Jersey.

Children especially are susceptible to dog bites because they are often naïve. Unfortunately, they often sustain serious injuries from dog bites (especially facial injuries), and dogs have actually killed some children.

If you or your child have been injured by a dog bite, you should consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer who has handled dog bite claims to discuss your options.
