Careless Dog Owners, Dog Bites and Your Rights New Jersey

Personal Injury Legal Help in Freehold, Toms River and Pt Pleasant Since 1985

Dogs have instincts that don’t always lead to safe situations when dogs are around people. For this reason, most people are free to own dogs in New Jersey, but strict laws restrict dogs’ movements. For instance, in many areas, dogs must be kept on a leash, inside a home or behind a fence.

Unfortunately, dog owners often feel that reasonable dog-related laws don’t apply to them. Just as often, dog owners get careless. When dog owners’ negligence leads to injuries, dog bite victims have legal recourse in the form of a lawsuit.

If a dog in northern New Jersey injured you or a loved one, contact the personal injury attorneys of The Law Office of Mallon & Tranger in Freehold, Toms River and Pt Pleasant. We have handled dozens of dog bite and animal bite cases. Our background and experience means that we:

  • Understand the liability laws that will apply in your case
  • Have investigated numerous dog bite cases that are likely similar to yours
  • Understand how insurance policies will apply to you’re the circumstances of your particular case
  • Have negotiated and litigated numerous high-value claims following dog attacks

Insurance companies are almost always reluctant to make a fair offer to settle a claim. You almost can’t blame them. They know that if an attorney is unable or unwilling to effectively pursue the full value of a claim, they’ll save money.

That’s where we come in. We can work with medical providers and other experts to determine the full, maximum compensation you are owed. Insurance companies know that, if they don’t make a fair settlement offer, we can and will take them to court, just like we have hundreds of times before.

Don’t suffer the effects of a dog attack without obtaining sound legal counsel. Instead, contact The Law Office of Mallon & Tranger in Freehold, Toms River or Pt Pleasant for a free consultation. Call (732) 410-6094 our fill out our online intake form.
