New Jersey Dog Bite Lawyers

Experienced Lawyers Helping Dog Bite Injury Victims Across New Jersey

According to the Humane Society, nearly 40 percent of American households own at least one dog. Dogs are highly valued for their loyalty and companionship. Unfortunately, dogs do bite, and when they do, the resulting injuries can be extremely serious. Due to their small stature and lack of familiarity with animals, young children make up a disproportionate number of dog bite victims. Dog bites can cause disfiguring injuries to the face, neck and head. As a result, dog bites can severely damage a person's self-image. The emotional trauma from a dog attack can create lasting psychological damage. If you or your child has been bitten by a dog, an experienced personal injury lawyer can be critical to helping you recover your full measure of damages.

At Britcher Leone, LLC, our lawyers are committed to helping injured people recover full compensation for their injuries. From our offices in Glen Rock and Parsippany, we represent people across New Jersey.

Under New Jersey law, dog owners are "strictly liable" for dog bites. Therefore, you will not need to prove that the dog had previously bitten another person or that the dog showed a propensity for violence. Rather, you will need to prove only that you were bitten by a dog in a public place, or while lawfully on your own or another's property.

Our attorneys will undertake a complete investigation of your injuries. We will prepare a claim that accounts for your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. It is not uncommon for people with severe dog bites to require cosmetic surgery. When a child is injured, he or she may require counseling to overcome the emotional and psychological harm. Whether your case is eventually settled out of court or resolved in trial, you can depend on our law firm to provide experienced and diligent legal representation.
