Animal Attack Attorney- Trauma of Dog Bites

Dog bites are a particularly shocking injury. An animal you regarded as a friendly pet suddenly turns on you, leaving physical injuries and psychological damage. Dog bites are particularly traumatic for children, who do not understand that some dogs bite with very little provocation, and that the natural response of all dogs to fear and perceived harm is to attack and bite.

Dog bites can cause serious scarring, blindness, and the need for extensive medical treatment, including reconstructive plastic surgery and counseling. At the Murgatroyd Law Group, our New Jersey animal bite lawyer knows how to obtain compensation for your dog bite injuries. If you or your child has been attacked by a dog or another animal, contact our Flemington law office today for a free initial consultation to review your options.

Dog Bite Law

Dog owners in New Jersey are liable for all injuries caused by their animal. There is no "one free bite" rule, which, in some states, allows dog owners one free bite to discover if their pet is dangerous. While some dogs, such as pit bulls and rottweilers, are known as "dangerous dogs", every dog has the potential to cause serious injury. The dog owner is responsible for preventing such injuries, whatever the breed of dog.
