Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey Dog Bite Lawyer

Dog and animal attacks are unpredictable, and can often result in major injuries and sometimes even death. Even more alarming is the fact that children suffer a majority of the dog bites and dog attacks. Many states, including New Jersey, have specific laws regarding dog bites. New Jersey has a strict liability dog bite statute that states that the owner of a dog is liable for damages inflicted by his or her dog if it bites a person who is either in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including on the property of the owner, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness. The dog owner is liable regardless of whether the owner had reason to believe it would behave in a vicious manner.

Though a dog bite or animal attack case may seem straightforward, the issues are quite complex and often involve questions of insurance coverage and a host of other legal concerns.
