Injuries caused by dog bites are a major public health issue in this country. About 80,000 Americans seek medical attention every year because of dog bite injuries. About half of the victims are children.
In both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the run of the mill dog bite case is a very simple straight forward case. The law in both of these states is very protective of victims of dog attacks and puts substantial responsibility on the dog owner.
We often encounter some issues in Pennsylvania and New Jersey dog attack cases. The issues we encounter in these cases are:
1. the lack of adequate insurance on the part of the dog owner; and
2. the victim's reluctance to pursue legal action.
The reason the victim of a dog attack does not want to pursue a lawsuit is often because the victim or the minor victim's guardians or parents know the dog owner. For example, the dog owner can be a relative, a neighbor or a friend.
Victims of dog attacks not only suffer physical injuries, but often, they suffer long-lasting psychological injuries as well. If you were attacked by a dog, it is important that you speak to an experienced dog bite injury lawyer to investigate your case.
