New Jersey and New York Dog Bite Lawyers
Whether you’re out for a walk in your neighborhood, at a dog park, or even at work, there’s a good chance you’ll encounter dogs in many public places and businesses. New Jersey and New York are among many dog-friendly states, and that means dogs are welcome in almost all places where people are.
Yet despite their reputation as “man’s best friend,” dogs can bite without warning or provocation—including dogs with no prior history of aggression. Even small dogs have sharp teeth and powerful jaws, and dog bites from any breed can cause victims to suffer serious and disabling injuries resulting in thousands of dollars in medical bills.
How Our Lawyers Can Help After a Dog Bite
At SK Law, our New Jersey and New York City dog bite attorneys know how serious dog attacks can be. Victims may experience severe complications, including blood loss, infection, and even disabling nerve damage. The financial costs associated with these types of injuries can be significant, as many victims require hospitalization, surgery, and physical rehabilitation.
You shouldn’t have to pay for those expenses out of pocket—especially when your injuries make it difficult or impossible for you to go back to work. Let us help you get the money you deserve. We know dog bite laws in both New Jersey and New York, and we’re able to collect the evidence necessary to help build a strong injury claim on your behalf. Then, we’ll calculate how much money you deserve, and we won’t back down until you get a chance at a fair settlement.
Dog Bite Laws Differ in New Jersey and New York
The laws surrounding dog bites and owner liability differ in New York and New Jersey. Dog owners in New York usually aren’t liable for damages caused by their pets if they have no previous history of aggression, while owners can be held liable after the first bite in New Jersey.
If you or your loved one was bitten by a dog, our team is ready to start reviewing your case at no cost—24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Let us handle the paperwork and communication with the dog’s owner and his or her insurance company while you focus on getting better.
