Keansburg Dog Bites

If you’ve been injured by a dog bite, you may have a case against the owner.

Dog bites injure thousands of Americans every year and can cause serious damage or even death. New Jersey is among the majority of American states that makes a dog owner legally liable for all of the damages inflicted upon a dog bite victim, even if the dog had never previously exhibited the propensity to bite humans.

If a dog owner hasn’t observed state laws for keeping a dangerous dog, he or she can face criminal penalties. The owner is responsible for notifying local authorities about the dog’s dangerous past, and taking steps to keep the dog restrained.

Call our personal injury team today at 888-355-4752 if you’ve been bitten by a dog and would like to take legal action against the owner.

Keansburg Terroristic Threats

Terroristic threats have become more common throughout the state of New Jersey, and can be seen as a serious offense under the eyes of the law.

Any threat of violence that cases serious alarm may be considered a terroristic threat. Examples may include damage to someone’s property, physical injury, or threat to inflict injury on someone with whom the victim is familiar.

Most terrorist threats are charged as a Third Degree Offense unless committed during a county, state, or national emergency, in which case it is a Second Degree Offense.

Under the doctrine of merger, a terroristic threats indictment will merge into a conviction of a higher grade offense. For example, if an individual was convicted for a first degree robbery in addition to a conviction for terroristic threats, the conviction for terroristic threats will be considered a lesser offense that merges into the greater offense, and the individual cannot be penalized separately for each offense.

If you’ve been charged with a terroristic threat, call our criminal defense team today at 888-355-4752.
