What Is the Statute of Limitations for Dog Bite Cases?

In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is generally two years. This means that you have two years from the date of the incident to file a personal injury claim against the liable party. If you wait longer to file your claim, you may lose your right to do so entirely. Certain circumstances could increase or decrease this time limit, so it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure you do not miss important deadlines.

If you were attacked by a dog and have not yet filed a personal injury claim, now is the time to reach out to our dog bite lawyer in Vineland.

What Is a Dog Owner's Liability for a Dog Attack?

In New Jersey, the dog bite statute is classified as "strict liability". This implies that the owner of a biting dog is held responsible for any injuries resulting from the dog bite, regardless of whether they took reasonable precautions to restrain or protect others. Put simply, if a person is bitten by a dog in New Jersey, they are not required to demonstrate that the dog's owner was negligent. It is only necessary to establish that the bite occurred.

However, if the dog's owner can prove that the victim provoked the dog or that the victim had a history of abusing the dog, the owner may not be liable for any damages.

Furthermore, under New Jersey's "vicious dog" law, a court is responsible for determining the viciousness of a dog that has inflicted harm on an individual. Should a dog be deemed vicious, it will be humanely euthanized.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Dog Bite Case?

In a dog bite case, you may be able to recover compensation for several different types of damages. These damages can help you cover the costs of medical bills, missed wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses related to the attack.

Some of the damages our dog bite lawyer in Vineland can help you recover include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent scarring or disfigurement
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Anxiety and PTSD
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Note: If the victim shares some responsibility for the bite, they can only seek damages from the owner if their fault is comparatively less than that of the owner. The allocation of damages will then be determined based on the respective percentages of fault attributed to both the victim and the dog owner. This particular scenario will be assessed by taking into account the entirety of the circumstances surrounding the incident.
