Fighting For You After An Animal Attack

A dog bite/attack is a traumatic incident, and it can leave you with both physical and emotional injuries. If you are navigating the aftermath of an animal attack, the experienced personal injury attorneys at Serafini & Serafini PC can help. Our New Jersey personal injury lawyers are skilled at advocating for the injured, and we will work diligently to hold liable parties accountable and secure appropriate compensation.

Dog bites can lead to serious injuries that can affect you for months, even years. As part of our strategy for your personal injury claim, we will work to help you secure the full amount of compensation necessary for your immediate needs, as well as your future accident-related concerns.

The Consequences Of A Dog Bite

The injuries a person can suffer in an animal attack incident range from minor scrapes and scratches to serious injuries that require extensive medical care and support. Some common dog bite injuries include the following:

  • Deep lacerations that require stitches
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Abrasions that leave permanent scarring or require skin grafts
  • Emotional trauma and mental duress
  • Infections caused by bite injuries
  • Rabies injections/vaccinations

Dog owners are responsible for ensuring their animal does not pose an unnecessary danger to others, particularly owners of dangerous breeds. Pit bulls, Dobermans and other specific breeds may have a higher propensity to bite or attack strangers, but any type of dog can cause significant harm in the event it is trained to act aggressively or when it is not properly supervised.

It is possible the dog owner is legally liable for the damages you or your child suffered from your dog bite. We genuinely care about your recovery, and we will diligently pursue the full amount of compensation you deserve. Our Wayne lawyers are experienced in complex personal injury cases, and we will explore all possibilities to help you secure what you need for medical care and other needs.
