Loss of consortium: Your spouse's injuries can hurt you, too

Imagine your spouse suffered a debilitating injury after getting into a serious car accident. She's now unable to walk, and she'll be paralyzed for the rest of her life. In addition to the great compassion you feel for what she has to go through, you also need to think about yourself.

It's not at all selfish to consider the way your spouse's disability will also hurt you. New Jersey civil law courts will recognize that you have also been injured indirectly as a result of your spouse's injuries. Courts refer to this kind of injury generally as a "loss of consortium."

Owner liability for dog bites in New Jersey

When it comes to dog attacks, getting bitten can come with serious health consequences. Dogs have been known to cause severe injuries -- even deadly injuries -- to children, adults and the elderly in the state of New Jersey.

It's due to the dangers associated with dog attacks that the state of New Jersey has enacted strict laws to protect its citizens from getting hurt by dogs. These laws apply to animal owners.

How can I avoid getting bitten by a dog?

Do you go on a run every morning and worry about getting bitten by a dog? New Jersey runners and bicyclists are especially at risk of dog attacks. Dogs love a moving target and if they think you're in their space, they could attack.

Although the owners of attacking dogs will likely be financially liable to pay for your medical care and other damages caused by their dogs, it's much preferable to avoid such an accident in the first place.
