Dog Bite Accident Attorneys in Parsippany, NJ

Although dogs are beloved family pets and loyal companions, they are still only animals, and they may react instinctively or aggressively to certain situations, or even attack without provocation. Being bitten by a dog may cause lasting physical and emotional injuries. A dog bite injury may result in infection, scarring, disfigurement, significant disability or even death. When an attack is serious, the victim may suffer broken bones, injuries from falling to the ground, lacerations, nerve damage, and even amputation. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by a dog bite, you must consider your legal options. To discuss your situation with a legal team you can trust, contact Lutz Injury Law today.

New Jersey Dog Bite Laws

New Jersey dog owners are liable for their dogs’ actions. Regardless of the dog’s history, the owner will be held responsible for the injuries their animal caused, unless the owner can prove the dog was provoked in some way. The cost of these injuries can be astounding. Between medical bills, lost wages, and the physical and emotional pain and suffering associated with dog attacks, a dog bite can weigh heavily on both one’s wallet and mind.

Recovering Compensation After a Dog Bite

Dog bites often result in serious physical, emotional, and financial burdens that can impact a victim for years down the road. Some of the most common injuries sustained in dog attacks can include torn skin, tendons and muscles, lasting nerve damage, serious disfiguring scarring, and broken bones. Sometimes, a dog attack can also impact a person psychologically. It is not uncommon for a dog bite to provoke post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. That is why oftentimes, you may recover compensation to help offset the burden of medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more.
