Dog Bit, Attacked Women in New Hampshire
A New Hampshire woman was recently bitten by her son's dog. In this case the dog was a pit bull and was visiting with its owners, the victims' son and daughter-in-law. Often dogs that bite are known by the victim.
In Nebraska a pit bull viciously attacked a women in the front yard of her own home. The owner of this dog was her son, just like the New Hampshire attack. In two unrelated cases children were injured after a dog bit them in the family home.
However, not all dog bites occur at home. On March 28th a dog came around a corner and ripped a baby out of its mother's arms. Both received injuries during the attack. The baby needed stitches while the mother had deep puncture wounds on her thigh.
In this case the owner was a friend of the victim. What should one do in such a situation? While you do not want to fracture a friendship is it crucial that you or an injured family member receive enough money to cover medical expenses now and into the future.
