Dog Bites

Injured in a dog attack in New Hampshire?

We know that dogs are often beloved pets, practically family to many. However, sometimes negligent owners do not take proper precautions in keeping others safe from the potential of an attack from an agitated, scared, or sick animal who is reacting on instinct or out of fear.

Thankfully, laws are in place to protect victims, and to demand responsibility from negligent parties. Injuries from dog bites can be grisly, and result in hefty medical bills. For that, you need compensation, and you deserve justice.

    Dog bite laws in New Hampshire

    A "strict liability" law is in effect in New Hampshire, holding dog owners accountable for the actions of their pets, including injury and/or property damage.

    According to New Hampshire law, the statute of limitations, or time period, for filing a claim for a dog bite is within three years of the injury. You need a skillful attorney to help you through the claims process in order to receive the compensation you deserve.

    Dog bite injuries can be life-altering

    The injuries suffered from a dog bite can be catastrophic. Often, multiple layers of skin are damaged, which can affect nerves, tendons, and ligaments. Permanent disfigurement is another possible outcome, which can severely affect a person's quality of life and add to the emotional trauma that often accompanies dog bites.

    Medical bills can pile up incredibly fast. Patients may need multiple surgeries in order to regain feeling, movement, and some quality of life. As a result, a victim can miss work, which will result in lost wages. This can have a significant impact, especially if the victim is the main breadwinner in a household.
