Dog Bites in New Jersey
Four and a half million people are bitten by dogs annually. The injuries sustained from dog bites and attacks are often serious, and the experience devastating. In New Jersey, a dog owner is liable for his dog’s actions even if the pet has never demonstrated vicious behavior in the past. This concept is referred to as negligence ‘per se’. Additionally, even if a dog bites you or your child while in the care of another party, such as a dog walker, the dog walker may be liable for the dog’s actions even though they are not the owners of the dog. Dog bite claims may be precluded where the person bitten was trespassing at the time of the dig bite, attempting to commit a criminal act, or otherwise provoked the dog or by their actions or assumed the risk of being bitten.
