Dog Bite Lawyer | Essex County NJ | Birkhold & Maider, LLC
Here’s the scenario: an off-leash – or leashed dog with a careless owner – becomes aggressive and you’re on the painful receiving end of the confrontation. What do you do next? Among the many good reasons to hire a professional New Jersey dog bite lawyer to help you seek restitution, probably the best is that fewer than 1% of dog bite victims get any form of compensation for their injuries. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, each year, more than 4.5 million people in the U.S. are bitten by dogs. Almost 1 in 5 people bitten by dogs require medical attention. Every year, more than 800,000 Americans receive medical attention for dog bites; at least half of them are children.
If I’m Bitten By a Dog In New Jersey, Whose In The Wrong?
When you are bitten by a dog, the law is on your side. Very often, the owner of the dog is subject to strict liability, which means that you do not have to prove their negligence; it is presumed. This enables you, the victim, to be fairly compensated for your injuries. If you’re wondering “Is there a dog bite lawyer near me?” the attorneys at Birkhold & Maider can analyze your specific situation to determine if strict liability applies in your dog bite accident.
