Woman and her pet dog suffer bites from unrestrained pit bull

On behalf of Goldstein Goldstein

In East Orange and the nearby areas of New Jersey, many people have dogs. While dogs are great and loyal pets, there is a fundamental level of responsibility that owners must adhere to in keeping them restrained. This is a basic safety requirement. Unfortunately, some owners are negligent in their duties to make certain their dogs are kept inside their property. If a dog escapes and bites another person, it can cause serious injuries and warrant a legal filing for compensation.

Dog attack injures woman and her own dog

A loud commotion ensued when a woman was suddenly attacked by a pit bull that had gotten loose from its home. She was out with her own mixed-breed Whippet when the incident occurred. Law enforcement officers were in the area and went to the scene. The woman was fighting the pit bull as it bit the neck of her own dog. One officer grabbed the pit bull to get it to release its grip. After around one minute, it did. The pit bull had escaped its home when a gate was left open. The woman was taken for treatment and found to have suffered punctures on her hands as she tried to protect her dog. Her dog was treated for its injuries.

Dog bites can result in serious injuries

There is an image of dogs as a person’s best friend. In many cases, that is an accurate depiction. However, some dogs are prone to biting people. If they are loose and attack, there can be serious injuries and, in extreme cases, death. These incidents can also result in psychological scars as well as physical ones. People may not be able to return to work or their normal lives in a timely fashion. Medical costs can be exorbitant and there might be personal, financial and emotional challenges in the aftermath. People are responsible for their pets and if there are dog bites and injuries, it is imperative to understand how to pursue compensation.

Legal assistance for dog bites and pet owner negligence

This woman and her dog were injured when a pit bull got free and attacked. Fortunately, she and the dog are expected to recover. Still, there can be problems for her and her pet after this unexpected attack. Since the pit bull’s owner was found and a gate is believed to have been left open, it is important to understand what steps to take to pursue compensation through a legal filing. Consulting with a firm that has experience in dog bites and pet owner negligence can provide information and help to proceed with a claim.
