Mount Laurel Dog Bite Attorneys
Placing the Responsibility on the Dog Owners
Under New Jersey law, dog owners are held strictly liable when their pets cause serious injuries to other people. There is no "one-bite" rule that provides immunity and no ability to claim that the owner had no prior knowledge of the dog's vicious propensities. With very few exceptions, if you were bitten by a dog while you were in a public place or while you were lawfully on the owner's private property, you have the right to seek damages from the owner.
At Fuhrman & Edelman, we represent clients who are suffering after being bitten or mauled by a dog or other animal. We understand the physical injuries that can occur in these attacks as well as the emotional trauma victims often experience—especially young children. We work tirelessly to secure the medical care and monetary compensation you need to recover over the short and long term. Our Mount Laure dog bite attorneys have successfully represented hundreds of people in personal injury claims in New Jersey. You can trust that we fight just as hard for you.

Seeking Full & Fair Compensation for Dog Attack Victims
Dog owners often attempt to limit their liability in these matters by claiming that the victim's own negligence was the reason for the attack, such as going near a dog that he or she knew had been trained for protection or deliberately provoking the dog.
We do a thorough investigation of the dog and its owner to show where the fault for your injuries lies. We are skilled litigators who prepare every case as if it were going to trial. We will not recommend a settlement unless we feel that the offer truly represents the fair value of your claim and provides for all your needs. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we never hesitate to take the matter to court.
