Were You Or Your Child Bit By An Aggressive Dog?

Under New Hampshire law, dog owners have strict liability for their pets’ behavior. This means that if you are bitten by a dog in New Hampshire, the animal’s owner and his or her homeowner’s insurance company are automatically liable. You do not have to prove that the owner or keeper of the dog was negligent or that the animal was known to be vicious.

If you, your child or someone you love was injured by a dog, you have the right to seek full compensation for any physical or emotional injuries. The Law Offices of Peter E. Hutchins is here to help you do exactly that.

We also understand that in the majority of such dog attacks, innocent children are the victims. They often suffer disfiguring bites to the face or neck, resulting in serious scars and the need for reconstructive surgery down the road. Our law firm will fight for the full amount of money your child needs, not only for current expenses, but also to cover the cost of any surgeries, counseling or other care in the future.

The Humane Society of the United States reports that most fatal attacks are caused by Rottweilers, German shepherds, pit bulls, huskies, malamutes and Saint Bernards. All too often, dog owners seek to avoid responsibility and blame the injured victim of their dog’s aggression. Regardless of the type of dog involved, serious injuries can result and we will stand by you to obtain full and fair compensation for your suffering.
