Owners of domesticated animals are responsible for properly training their pets and protecting individuals and other animals from animal attacks. These injuries are typically associated with dogs such as pit bulls, Rottweilers and Dobermans, but any animal can cause serious injury.

At Rosenberg, Kirby, Cahill, Stankowitz & Richardson, we pursue compensation for dog bite and animal attack cases throughout Ocean County and surrounding areas of New Jersey.

We will pursue a compensation package that reflects the full scope of your injuries, including those that involve:

  • Physical pain
  • Nerve damage
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Injuries to children
  • Psychological trauma
  • Infections and diseases

Strict Liability And Your Dog Bite Injury Claim

Dog bite injuries are classified under strict liability law in New Jersey. Strict liability means any injury caused by a dog bite is the responsibility of the defendant, whether or not the defendant was proven to be negligent.

We can help you determine what level of compensation to pursue, when to push back aggressively in litigation and when a skillful hand in out-of-court settlements will suffice.
