Dog Bites

The injuries caused by dog bites can be severe which makes the need for legal representation of an experienced New Jersey dog bite lawyer necessary. There are approximately 75 million dogs owned by residents of the United States, and the cost associated with dog bites and dog attacks is estimated to be about a billion dollars each year.

Quite frequently, dog bite lawsuits occur because many victims bitten by dogs suffer lacerations, disfigurement and tissue damage. Being that people don’t expect dog to bite them or their guests make the victims almost defenseless during attacks. Dogs bite unsuspecting victims at the face and neck that can result in serious injuries. These injuries can result in scars which leave the victims mentally injured long after the physical pain subsides. The physical and psychological pain and suffering, including the costs of medical bills resulting from dog bite injuries can be a heavy burden for the victims to bear.

The dog bite law in the state of New Jersey is subject to strict liability legal principle, which means that an animal doesn’t get the privilege of “one free bite” in the state. Regardless of the previous viciousness of a dog, the owner of the dog that bites a person shall be held liable for the victim’s injuries if the person bitten is in a public place or lawfully in a private place during the attack.

If a dog bites you, a family member or friend, you need the legal representation of an experienced New Jersey dog bite lawyer to help you in filing a compensation lawsuit against the insurance provider of the dog owner. Make sure you get the compensation you deserve for your lost wages, medical expenses, scars, pain and suffering.

    About 4 months ago my wife got a job that came with housing. After going over all details and making plans for about 4 months prior to moving with management we packed up our whole lives, our pets, dropped some side jobs we had, and moved … More to the property where the job was located. After a few weeks things started getting very strange with management and "team" and after 2 full months everything that was planned in detail prior to moving to this property fell apart. After trying to discuss in person with management and then trying to discuss through email with management my wife was fired and we were given 5 days to pack up and leave the property. We had to start our lives over again. We immediately contacted Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and worked with Ryan Getz & David Cassidy who are absolutely incredible at what they do! They were able to help us get off the property in a reasonable way and receive a settlement for all trouble caused by this "business". This was an incredibly stressful and scary situation but David and Ryan stayed in contact with us, were extremely patient, professional, soothing and just overly fantastic. If you are having any type of issue with an employement situation and being treated unfairly I highly recommend working with Ryan & David! I am so thankful they were able to take our case and help us through that mess. This was our first time having to hire legal help and I am just so grateful we found David and Ryan. In the future should we need any additional legal help we will absolutely be contacting them again. Thank you both so much!

    My wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Vlasac and Shmaruk took care of everything. They walked us through the process and took care of all the paperwork. They reached a settlement and we were happy. Glad to put that … More behind us and glad we used Vlasac and Shmaruk to help us get the money we needed for a new car and to get our medical bills paid. Thanks for everything you did!!!!
