New Jersey’s Dog Bite Statute has Teeth

In some other states, a victim of a dog bite must prove that the dog had a history of being vicious… But not in New Jersey.  In fact, in New Jersey, you do not even need to prove any negligence, because New Jersey law holds a dog owner strictly liable for all injuries suffered by a dog bite victim.  This means that a dog owner is automatically responsible if his or her dog bites someone, absent any fault of the victim.  A New Jersey dog bite lawyer does not need to prove that the dog owner was acting negligently.

Compensation for Dog Bite Victims

If a dog has bitten you, your compensation may include payment to cover some of the following:

  • Medical fees
  • Plastic surgery
  • Scars and disfigurement
  • Lost wages
  • Nerve damage
  • Treatment of wound infection
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Psychological counseling
  • Future medical expenses

While New Jersey’s dog bite law favors the victim, there are a couple of exceptions.  For example, a dog bite victim may not recover for their injuries if they occurred as a result of his or her own negligence or trespass onto the dog owner’s property.  It is in your best interests to discuss your specific case with experienced NJ Dog Bite Lawyers.
