Dog bites are a very serious and dangerous matter. They can cause blood loss and infections, and can even result in loss of fingers, toes or even limbs. In addition, victims suffer from great trauma, especially if they are young children. A dog bite can result in missed work, high medical costs and devastating injuries, in addition to great emotional psychological stress.
Negligent dog owners who fail to keep pets restrained can be liable for your damages and suffering. New Jersey law specifically states that an owner of a dog is liable whenever the victim is lawfully on private property, such as with mail carriers.
In many cases dog owners have insurance that provides damages in such cases. Many times a pet owner’s home insurance includes dog bite coverage when the bite occurs on the owner’s property. Should the bite have happened inside of a vehicle, often the owner’s and victim’s insurance companies will settle the liability for damages based on the circumstances.
Atlantic County dog bite injury lawyers should be well-versed on state dog bite laws and willing to go to trial against insurance companies who are unwilling to fairly compensate victims. Westmoreland Vesper & Quattrone will review your case file thoroughly, and we are willing to take a case to court when we feel it is necessary. We have a great deal of experience negotiating with insurance companies who downplay injuries and we bring that experience to work for you.
