Dog Bite Lawyers In New Jersey And Pennsylvania
At Garber Law, we understand the seriousness of dog bites and other animal attacks and will represent you to recover the full measure of compensation for medical expenses, counseling and pain and suffering. A dog may be an owner’s best friend, but it’s not a victim’s best friend if it bites. Dog and animal owners need to take proper care to make sure passersby and visitors are not harmed by the animal.
An experienced Garber Law attorney in Camden County, New Jersey, will fight to protect your rights and will ensure that you have the resources that you need to fully recover from an animal attack. We have experience handling a wide variety of cases involving the victims of animal attacks.
Common Types Of Injuries
Dog bites and other animal attacks can cause serious physical harm and severe pain and suffering. Dog bite attacks can cause trauma, permanent scarring and nerve damage. Some dog bites are fatal. Additionally, dogs and other animals can also carry serious diseases (rabies for example), that can be passed on to humans through the bites. These diseases can be deadly.
Children account for the majority of dog bite victims, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. Children are less likely to understand the dangers dogs can inflict, so they take more risks. Because children are smaller, a dog bite that might be minor for an adult will be major for a child. The medical bills for these types of injuries can be quite high, and a skilled personal injury attorney could be key to obtaining the compensation you need to help your child recover.
Attacks From Dogs And Other Animals
In addition to attacks from dogs, attacks from other animals can be just as dangerous. At Garber Law, we represent clients in many types of animal attack cases, including attacks involving:
- Dangerous breeds of dogs – Dobermanns, German shepherds, Rottweilers and pit bulls, etc.
- Household pets – cats, dogs, birds, hamsters and more.
- Farm animals – cows, pigs, hens, etc.
- Reptiles – snakes, lizards, etc.
Some Of The Ways Animal Attacks Could Be Prevented
Animal attacks can be prevented in many cases if the owner undertook minor precautions such as:
- Proper fencing to keep the dog confined to the property
- Using a leash for the animal
- Having a warning sign – “Beware – dog on the premises”
