New Jersey Dog Bite and Animal Attack Attorney
We have seen firsthand the painful and disfiguring injuries inflicted by animal attacks and bites, sometimes by the “friendly” dog next door.
If you or your child suffered serious injury when a dog attacked you, the animal’s owner may be responsible for medical care and associated damages as well as for pain and suffering awards. You can count on us to pursue full compensation for a dog bite or other vicious animal attack

Experienced Representation in Dog Bite and Animal Attack Cases
There is no “one free bite” in New Jersey – the pet’s owner is strictly liable even if the animal has never bitten or attacked before. The only defenses are trespassing or provoking the animal, and even those may not apply when young children are bitten or mauled.
You need a lawyer who understands the medical and legal issues to ensure that your claim covers all your losses or unusual circumstances:
- Bite or claw wounds
- Nerve or ligament damage
- Scarring or reconstructive surgery
- Dog knock down case
- Situations where animals (dogs) injure innocent people by chasing them or otherwise causing injury
- Injuries from fleeing a vicious dog
- Emotional trauma requiring psychiatric care or counseling (a severe mauling or a child now terrified of all dogs)
With more than 20 years of experience as a personal injury attorney, we know the questions to ask and the documentation needed to expedite the claim and secure full damages.
