Dog Bites
Freehold and Bridgewater Dog Bite Injury Lawyers
Owners of dogs and other animals are responsible for the harm the animals do. While some breeds of dogs have a reputation for aggressiveness and injury to other animals and people, any dog can bite a person or knock an elderly person down. When this happens the owner is usually liable for any damage.

The most common injury is to a child who simply doesn't know how to interact with a dog. Unless the attack happens on the owner's property, the owner will probably be liable. Injuries to children cause scarring and emotional trauma. New Jersey law holds dog owners strictly liable.

Elderly people are also particularly vulnerable to dog injuries. Elderly people lack the reflexes to avoid being knocked down. They are more fragile and can suffer serious injury such as a broken hip, or head injury.
