Rudnick Law Holds Animal Owners Responsible for Attacks
In the state of New Jersey, we need to be able to prove that your injuries were caused by a particular animal and that there is a person who owns the animal. In other words, if you are walking in the woods and get attacked by a bear, you can’t sue Mother Nature. However, if you are on your friend’s farm and their horse tramples you, you can seek damages for your injuries.
Wild animals are called such because they are meant to live in the wild. Anyone who keeps one as a pet should know about their dangerous propensity for attacking other animals and humans. Even the calmest wild animal can strike without warning. Therefore, if they are negligent in properly restraining their “pet,” we can hold the owner responsible for the attack.
In many cases, you might find yourself playing with or petting the animal when it goes on the attack. Other times, you get injured trying to get away from an attacking animal — a ferociously barking dog or stampeding farm animal, for example. In either case, you need a skilled, compassionate lawyer who will fight for your rights and significant damages in your animal attack case.
You don’t have to be embarrassed or concerned about filing a personal injury lawsuit against a relative, friend or neighbor. We will be suing their homeowner’s insurance company or other property liability insurance carrier. If you are injured, the damages we will seek on your behalf won’t come directly out of your friend’s pocket. Besides, if you are out of work recovering from your painful injuries, you will need financial compensation to pay your medical bills and other living expenses. You shouldn’t have to foot the bill for someone else’s negligence.
Young children are often the victims of animal attacks because they generally don’t fear animals. They want to play with dogs and cats and other cute, furry creatures. Also, young children aren’t able to sense when an animal is about to bite.
