What is a Dog Bite Case?
A dog bite case is a claim or lawsuit brought by the victim of a dog bite against the dog’s owner. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) more than 4.5 million people sustain dog bites in the United States every year. New Jersey made the list of top 10 states with the most dog bite claims, according to property insurance data for 2023. Dog bites often leave victims with serious physical and psychological injuries, and related medical expenses can cause them to suffer financial hardships as well. Victims of a dog bite may seek compensation from the dog’s owner for their physical, emotional, and financial injuries.
By bringing a dog bite case against the dog’s owner, a victim may receive compensation for the following:
- Medical bills (past and future)
- Loss of earnings (past and future)
- Psychological/emotional distress
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring and/or disfigurement
The highly skilled personal injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan possess a wealth of knowledge in the area of dog bite law. They understand the challenges faced by victims seeking compensation for their injuries and tirelessly advocate to produce demonstrated results for their clients.
Types of Dog Bite Cases
New Jersey has adopted a strict dog bite law that holds dog owners responsible for injuries caused when their dog bites another individual, even if the dog has no history of biting. This type of statute follows a strict liability model, meaning the victim is not required to prove the dog’s owner was negligent to recover.
The dog bite law does present some exceptions to strict liability, including provocation by the victim and trespassing.
What are some Common Dog Bite Injuries?
The injuries associated with dog bites include:
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Puncture wounds

- Tissue and muscle damage
- Contusions and bruises
