Dog bites can often lead to significant injuries and scarring, both physical and emotional. At Trabosh & Trabosh we have extensive experience in handling dog bite claims and have been able to secure our clients fair compensation for their injuries. Most dog bite claims in New Jersey are covered by the doctrine of strict liability. This means that you may be able to receive compensation without needing to show the dog owner was careless or negligent.
You may also be able to recover for injuries sustained as a result of a knockdown or fall caused by a dog, although in these instances you would need to be able to prove some negligence on behalf of the dog owner.
If you have been the victim of a dog bite injury please contact us to discuss your options. We urge you to contact us as soon as possible after a dog bite incident as important steps must be taken to preserve evidence, report the incident and arrange for medical treatment.
