A dog bite is not only a traumatic and life-changing experience, it can result in a loss of limbs or digits, loss of blood, dangerous infections and other health risks. A victim of a dog bite can be faced with debilitating injuries, high medical costs, missed work and devastating emotional and psychological stress.
If a dog owner’s negligence in restraining an animal results in a bite victim, that owner can be liable for the victim’s suffering. New Jersey law states that the dog owner is liable any time that the victim is legally on the property, such as mail carriers. In most cases, the dog owner will have insurance for dog bite injuries. If a bite happens on the owner’s property, homeowner’s insurance usually provide coverage; for bites that occur in a vehicle, the owner and victim’s insurance companies settle the damage.
To properly litigate a case, Cape May County dog bite injury lawyers need to be aware of local statutes and be ready and willing to take insurance companies to court when they fail to fairly compensate a victim. Westmoreland Vesper & Quattrone will thoroughly review your case, and we will be prepared to take the case to trial if necessary. We have years of experience challenging insurance companies and their attempts to downplay injuries. We bring that experience to every case.
