Speak to a Passaic County Dog Attack Lawyer

Thousands of Americans are given medical attention for dog bites each year. An overwhelming majority of these are children. If your dog has attacked, or if you have suffered an injury that was the result of a dog mauling, contact the Law Offices of Jennifer M. Mendelsohn, LLC.

Paterson Dog Bite Lawyer

Contrary to popular belief, it is not necessary to prove that an owner was negligent in order to pursue damages. You need only evidence that you were bitten or attacked without provocation and had a legal right to be on the property where the incident occurred.

A dog bite injury can result in permanent scarring or disability, as well as infection or nerve damage. Depending upon the circumstances of your attack, you may be entitled to compensation for past and future medical expenses in addition to compensation for pain and suffering. In order to best determine the maximum sum you can receive under the law, it is useful to have prepared:

  • The name and address of the dog owner
  • Names and addresses of witnesses to the attack
  • A description of where the attack occurred
  • A medical evaluation of the injury
  • A thorough description of the situation that led to the attack

Defending Dog Owners

Under New Jersey state law, all dog owners are liable for damage caused by their pets. That means your insurance company may be forced to compensate a victim following a dog attack. However, as an experienced Fair Lawn dog bite lawyer, attorney Jennifer M. Mendelsohn understands that many times, owners are not to blame.

During your initial consultation, she will sit down with you and discuss the circumstances that led to your dog's alleged attack. Was the victim trespassing on your property or mistreating your pet? Wrongful or negligent conduct by the plaintiff may be cause to have the case against you dismissed.
