Hackensack Animal Attack Attorney

Whether the attack takes place at home, on the sidewalk or in a park, the dog owner must be held responsible. Depending on the size or breed of the dog, serious injuries can follow an attack, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Scars
  • Disfigurement
  • Infection
  • Torn connective tissue
  • Lacerations

Often, these injuries will require multiple doctor visits and even surgery to fully heal. An experienced lawyer can efficiently guide you through the legal process while you focus your time and attention on getting healthy.

Injuries to Children

By virtue of their inquisitive and trusting nature, children often approach and play with animals that adults might avoid. Additionally, children might not recognize the warning signs of an aggressive or angry dog. Children often suffer more severe injuries because they lack the size and strength to fight off an enraged animal. These children might have to live the rest of their lives struggling with scarring, physical or emotional trauma. Contact an attorney to discuss your best course of action.
