Injuries From a Dog Bite?
A dog bite is a traumatic event whether it involves a child or an adult. An attack can lead to severe injuries such as scarring, disfigurement, infection, and nerve damage.
Pennsylvania and New Jersey have different standards as to how dog or property owners are held responsible when a dog bite occurs. In Pennsylvania, it is necessary to show that the person who had control of the dog knew or should have known of that animal’s violent tendencies. In New Jersey, the burden of proof is much simpler having to prove only that the animal attacked the victim.
These claims need proper and timely investigation by an experienced lawyer. If you or a loved one was the victim of an animal attack, please call us to discuss this matter immediately.
