In addition to being a frightening and traumatic experience, being bitten by a dog can cause great injury and health risks. Dog bites can result in excessive loss of blood, severe infections, even loss of digits or limbs. When you are injured by a dog bite, you could be facing debilitating injuries, high medical costs and missed work as a result, not to mention the devastating psychological and emotional trauma.
When dog owners are negligent, they can be liable for damages to mitigate your suffering. In New Jersey, a dog owner is considered strictly liable when a victim is lawfully on private property (such as mail carriers).
The owner of a dog who has bitten or injured someone, if found guilty, often has insurance to cover such matters. In most cases, homeowner’s insurance includes coverage for dog bites that happen on the owner’s property. When an animal bite occurs in a car, the owner’s and victim’s insurance companies will often debate and settle which company is responsible for damages.
South Jersey dog bite injury lawyers must be aware of statutes and ready to challenge insurance companies who fail to fairly compensate dog bite victims. At Westmoreland Vesper Quattrone & Beers, we thoroughly examine your case and will always be prepared to go to trial if necessary. We have a wealth of experience negotiating with insurance companies and challenging their attempts to downplay injuries, and we bring that experience to each individual case.
