About Bites and Attacks at Dog Parks

In a New Jersey dog park, dogs are able to be free from the leash and play with other dogs or with their owners. As such, this may slightly alter how a dog bite claim related to an attack at a dog park may be handled. Although a dog does not have to be on a leash while in a dog park, this does not mean that a dog owner may bring an overly aggressive dog to a park and expect to be held immune from responsibility if that dog attacks a person or another dog. Many of the same laws still apply to dog park bites, including the strict liability of the owner.

If you were injured, or if your dog was hurt or killed while at a New Jersey dog park, it is important that you consider involving an attorney to handle your claim. You have the right to hold the dog owner responsible, but it may take a legal professional to properly assert your rights and help ensure that you have the best opportunity of recovering the full value of your claim.

About Dog Park Bites and Liability in New Jersey

Some dog parks may have signs posted that are meant to limit liability in the event of a dog fight or attack. It is important to read these signs carefully. However, these may not stand up in court particularly if a dog with a dangerous past was present in the park and caused your injuries.
