Attacked By A Dog? You May Be Entitled To Compensation For Your Injuries.
If you have been injured in a dog attack in Hackensack or elsewhere in northern New Jersey, it’s important to understand that the dog’s owner can be held responsible for the injuries the animal inflicted. Although you may not want to take action against the animal in question, it’s important to hold a negligent owner accountable and protect others from suffering similar injuries.
Dog Bite Injuries Should Be Taken Seriously With Help From A Lawyer
Many dog bite victims suffer long-term psychological damage such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Long after being injured in a dog attack, victims can still experience acute fear of another attack. If you have suffered a dog bite injury, your emotional trauma may return every time you walk down a public sidewalk, jog through a local park or enter a dog owner’s house.
To ensure that you receive just compensation and the treatment you need, it’s in your best interests to consult an experienced lawyer who understands dog bite and other animal attack cases.
At Faugno & Associates, L.L.C., we will work closely with you and consult professionals to assess both your physical and emotional trauma to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
Proving a dog bite injury case requires prompt action to preserve evidence, take witness statements and photograph the location of the attack. As your lawyers, we will:
- Send an investigator to the scene of the attack to identify the owner of the dog that attacked you
- Take statements from witnesses
- Gather additional evidence or testimony regarding the dog that may reflect a history of aggressive behavior
- Ensure that a medical professional examines your injuries and you receive appropriate care
