Seeking Justice For Dog Bite Victims
Many households throughout Camden County have dogs or other pets. Unfortunately, even a well-cared-for animal can attack a person for a wide variety of reasons. An isolated dog bite, or a vicious attack from a dog, can inflict disfiguring and serious personal injuries.
New Jersey law makes a dog’s owner liable for any harm the animal inflicts on a dog bite victim. The medical costs following an animal attack can mount quickly. Long-term medical care may require corrective surgery and physical therapy in the future. The emotional and physical scars from a dog bite can weigh heavily on a victim.
Did You Or Your Child Have An Altercation With An Attacking Dog?
While people of all ages can be the victim of a dog attack, young children and the elderly are particularly vulnerable. Delivery personnel, including mail carriers, repair professionals, joggers, walkers and other individuals, can suffer significant harm in a dog attack. Neighbors or friends often suffer injury while dog-sitting while the owner is away for work or vacation.

He has over 20 years of experience providing zealous legal representation to personal injury victims in Cherry Hill and surrounding communities.
We know how to investigate the relevant details to build a compelling case to maximize recovery for our clients. In some situations, determining ownership for a loose dog that is involved in a dog attack is necessary. An investigation for prior animal complaints is often critical in cases where a dog has attacked other victims.
New Jersey’s laws are becoming more favorable to victims of dog attacks. A victim does not have to prove the dog has a propensity to attack to seek financial compensation for injuries suffered in an attack. However, an investigation for prior animal complaints is important to a complete record for a personal injury claim.
While certain dog breeds, such as pit bulls, Dobermans or Rottweilers, seem to garner the attention of the media in dog attacks, any breed of dog can cause significant damage in an attack. If you or a family member has been attacked by a dog in South Jersey, you can rely on our trial-proven experience to protect your right to recover for your injuries.
