Dog Bite Injury Lawsuits In New York And New Jersey
The first step we take in getting you the full financial compensation you are due if you’ve suffered a dog bite injury or animal attack is to establish ownership of the animal. An owner is responsible for his or her animal even if the animal is not on the owner’s property at the time of the attack. We will ensure a thorough investigation.
In some cases, provocation of the animal may be an issue. We can advise you what constitutes provocation. This is not an issue, however, with young child victims (the most common victims of dog attacks). Young children receive special consideration in the courts.
The third prong of a dog bite case is to establish the full extent of injuries, including lasting scars and deformity as well as nerve damage and loss of movement. Because dog bites cause deep punctures and tearing injuries, they are prone to infection after the original injury. We work with medical experts to document your condition.
