Vicious Pit Bull Running Towards You

Although a dog may be a beloved family pet and loyal companion, it is still an animal that may react instinctively or aggressively to certain situations or attack without provocation.

Being bitten by a dog may cause lasting physical and emotional injuries.

A dog bite injury may cause infection, scarring, disfigurement, significant disability or even death.  When an attack is serious, the victim may suffer broken bones, injuries from falling to the ground, lacerations, nerve damage, and even amputation.

We know from over 30 years of experience that these injuries will require immediate medical attention and possibly physical therapy, reconstructive surgery and continued medical care.

Our firm prides itself on caring about you - our client. We believe that our dog bite injury clients should not have to deal with all of these matters alone.

Dog owners are represented by their insurance carriers who have their own interests in mind, not yours.  Even if bitten by a friend's dog, we strongly advise you to consult with us on a "no obligation" basis. Ignoring the incident only benefits the insurance carrier, certainly not you and possibly not your friend who may feel responsible for your injuries.

By stepping in and handling your claim or lawsuit, we level the playing field, working hard to help alleviate the physical, emotional and financial difficulties you are currently experiencing.

Let us deal with aggressive insurance carriers, obtaining the compensation you deserve to rebuild your life.

If you need help with a claim or lawsuit involving a dog attack, contact New Jersey dog bite lawyer Edward Lutz today.

    I have been recently seeing a trend in auto insurance companies issuing auto policies with minimal personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. New Jersey is a “no fault” state, meaning that regardless of fault the injured person’s own auto insurance policy covers his own medical bills resulting from treatment of injuries sustained in a car accident.
