A case in which an Ocean County woman sustained a severe bite wound on her forearm in 2016 settled for the amount of $150,000. The case was previously rejected by two other law firms due to a potential issue of landlord liability; the owner of the dog did not carry homeowner's insurance, and Mr. Cowhey helped his client bring a claim against her landlord on the basis that she knew of the dog's dangerous propensities, given prior examples of aggression involving the dog in question. The case was settled after liability as against the landlord was established by Mr. Cowhey. Dog bite claims in which the dog's owner does not own their home require that prior knowledge on the part of the landlord of the property must be established before a claim can be succesfully prosecuted. This is a difficult area of dog bite law in which Mr. Cowhey excels, and in which he makes sure to take every step necessary to establish liability in order to bring such claims to a favorable result.
