Helping Victims of Dog Bites & Attacks

Personal Injury AttorneyWe all like to pet a dog at the park or on the street. But even though a dog may look cute, it may be vicious and attack you, causing serious injuries. Certain dogs have an extremely strong bite that can cause serious injuries sand permanent scarring. When a child is bitten or attacked, the physical and emotional scars can last a lifetime.

If you have been bitten by a dog or attacked by any other animal, the New Jersey dog bite attorneys at Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. can help your protect your rights and get the compensation that you deserve. We have been serving the needs of animal attack victims in New York and New Jersey for over 25 years. We have the experience and resources to fight for your rights.

The Law Is Clear

New Jersey law makes it clear: dog owners are responsible for their pet’s actions. The law also provides that a dog bite or attack victim is entitled to pursue compensation for injuries, including medical expenses, time away from work, and pain and suffering.

However, determining liability in a dog bite case requires careful legal analysis. In many situations, in order to avoid responsibility, dog owners will deny they own the attacking dog. These cases require the New Jersey dog bite attorneys to seriously investigate all possible defendants in order to prove ownership of the dog.

At Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C., our attorneys will determine ownership of the dog and the facts of the attack, discover insurance information, investigate the history of the dog, and ultimately make the insurance company pay in full for the damages you have suffered.

We Never Underestimate the Potential Seriousness of Dog Bites

Vicious dogs, such as pit bulls, often cause such serious damages requiring the to get plastic surgery or other extensive costly treatment. We represent adults and children who have been bitten by dogs and have suffered serious injuries, including:

  • Severe lacerations
  • Puncture wounds
  • Broken bones
  • Other disfiguring injuries

But regardless of the type and extent of injury, the dog owner is still typically responsible. That is precisely why it is important to hire a New Jersey dog bite attorney who can pursue your legal rights and get you the compensation that you deserve for the injuries you have suffered.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
