We represent victims of dog bites and aggressively seek compensation for those injured as a result of a dog bite. Pursuant to New Jersey Statute Annotated § 4:19-16, the owner of a dog, which bites a person in a public place, is responsible for the damages caused by the dog bite, regardless of whether the dog was vicious or the owner’s knowledge of whether the dog was vicious.
If you or any family member has been injured as a result of a dog bite, kindly contact our office. The lawyers at Elkind and DiMento, P.A. will evaluate your case without charge and explain your options to you. Representation of our clients whom have sustained injuries as a result of a dog bite are based on a Contingency Fee Agreement. What this means is that you are not obligated to pay attorney fees until a recovery is made on your behalf.
