Have You Been the Victim of A Dog Bite?

Are you looking for a New Jersey dog bite lawyer in Bergen, Passaic, Essex or Hudson Counties, or in nearby areas?


You’ve been injured by a dog or other animal, through no fault of your own. Maybe a neighbor failed to supervise his pet. Perhaps the breed involved was particularly vicious. Or maybe a previously calm dog bit for the first time, and you were mauled as a result.
However it happened, you were hurt. Who will pay for your medical expenses, pain and suffering? You can be sure that the insurance company for the animal owner has experienced lawyers and insurance adjusters on their side. You’ll need an experienced dog bite attorney to represent you. A dog bite attorney with the experience and toughness to stand up to the other side’s lawyers. A dog bite lawyer to look out for you.

Why You Need a Dog Bite Attorney

Under New Jersey law, to receive compensation if you’ve been bitten by a dog, you generally don’t even have to prove that the owner should have known that the animal was vicious, or that it attacked someone else before. Rather, as long as you weren’t trespassing, and didn’t provoke the dog, you usually have a right to compensation from the dog’s owner. (You should consult a qualified attorney to confirm that the general rule applies in your specific case).


If you’re the victim of an animal bite, you don’t have to go it alone. You don’t have to let the insurance company pressure you into giving a statement that might hurt your case. As they say on TV, anything you say can be used against you later. The insurance company may also try and pressure you to settle your case for less than it’s worth. An experienced personal injury attorney who concentrates in dog bites can help you stand up to a large insurance company. With an experienced dog bite lawyer at your side, you can receive every dollar that you deserve.

There Is a Deadline to Take Legal Action. Don’t Miss It!

You should know that there is a time limit for taking legal action to pursue any claims that you may have. If you fail to take the proper action on time, you will never be able to recover anything for your injuries. The time limit can be as little as 90 days from the date of the accident. In other cases, you may have more time. Either way, you need an experienced dog bite lawyer to make sure that you don’t lose out on a technicality.

Similarly, there may be time limits involved for you to file a claim for insurance benefits to cover your medical expenses. Even if you don’t have an insurance policy yourself, it may be possible for you to obtain insurance benefits to pay for your medical bills. Again, an experienced animal bite attorney can help.
