Dog Bites and Children
Children are at the highest risk for dog bites. They are also at the highest risk for serious and life-threatening injuries sustained from these attacks. If your child has suffered an attack from an uncontrolled animal in New Hampshire or Vermont, the Manchester dog bite attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss are here to help your family get the justice you deserve.
Children who suffer attacks from a dog are often left with both physical and emotional damages. But while disfigurement, damage to deep tissue, and even loss of a body part can be healed through medical treatment, the emotional aftermath can be a lifelong battle. Our dog bite attorneys take into consideration the many ways an attack has and will continue to impact the health and happiness of child victims, and we fight tooth and nail for full compensation that accounts for these damages and covers all current and future costs associated with recovery.
Understanding Your Rights
In New Hampshire, dog owners are held liable for damages caused by their animal even if they didn’t know of its violent tendencies. However, insurance companies will often try to get parents of children attacked by dogs to quickly agree to a settlement in order to avoid being required to pay for the full extent of damages. Before you accept an offer from an insurance provider, discuss your case with us. We can help you understand what your case is truly worth and help your family recover the total compensation you are due.
