NJ Lawyer for Dog Bite Injuries

Diligent New Jersey Defense Attorneys for Dog Bite Victims

Dog is known to be man's best friend. However, dogs can quickly become our worst enemy as well. Either due to improper training or strong instinct, dog bites can happen to anyone at any time and at any age. While pit bulls, rottweilers and other "bully breeds" are considered more prone to bite, all dog breeds can bite and can leave permanent damage to an individual. Regardless of the breed of the dog, if the attack was unprovoked and you were on the property legally, you are entitled for financial compensation from the owner of the attacking dog. Make sure you receive all that you are entitled to from your painful experience. Contact the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., to speak with a seasoned dog bite attorney about your legal case.

Dog Owner Liability

As the owner of a dog, you are responsible to make sure the dog will not harm anyone. If a dog attacks a person unprovoked who had permission and legal right to be there, you are responsible. There is no policy of forgiving the first bite from a dog in the state of New Jersey. New Jersey dog owners are responsible for any bite, even if there was no sign of previous aggression. Because of this, if the dog is proven to be yours, the one who caused the bite as well as not provoked to bite in any way from the victim and the victim had the legal right to be on the property, you are responsible for the damages done to the victim.

Contracting Rabies From a Dog Attack

When a victim receives a dog bite, usually one of the worries is if the dog is rabid or not. While most dogs are vaccinated against rabies, some owners choose not to vaccinate their canine companion, which can be deemed as a reckless, careless behavior. You should not be paying for the negligence of the owner not vaccinating their dog. If you have found yourself to be bitten by a rabid dog, the owners of the dog are responsible and you are entitled to a cash award. Our New Jersey dog attack victim lawyers will utilize our 40 years of combined experience to defend your rights and secure the best compensation possible.

Lifelong Scarring From Bites

One of the more common results from a dog bite is scarring. A scar from a dog bite can leave you permanently disfigured for the rest of your life. At the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., we feel you should get compensated for your pain and suffering. Use our free initial consultation to see what available legal options you may have.
