New Hampshire Dog Bite Lawyers

Helping Victims of Dog Attacks Seek Compensation

Dog bite attacks are serious and a frequent problem in New Hampshire. Each year thousands of people are victims of dog bite attacks. Under New Hampshire law, the owner or person in control of a dog who injures another person is responsible to the dog bite victim. The majority of dog bite attacks occur at home or in a familiar place. The sad fact is that children are the victims of the most serious dog bite injuries. Our New Hampshire dog bite lawyers at Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C. can aggressively represent you.

Why Hire a Lawyer

Whether the dog bite victim is a child or an adult, dog bites can cause serious injuries such as scarring, disfigurement, and emotional injuries, and result in significant medical bills. In most cases, the dog owner has insurance coverage. Typically, the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance policy will be responsible to the victim for injuries.

Insurance companies have teams of people working for them to try to pay the lowest amount for your claim. Don’t be at the mercy of the insurance companies.

You want someone with experience and a proven track record. We believe you deserve that and more. You need a law firm that knows how to take on the insurance company, fight for your rights, and get the compensation you deserve.

Our dog bite lawyers include a former state Supreme Court and Superior Court judge, Charles G. Douglas, III. On top of that, he wrote the New Hampshire Evidence Manual, which is used by judges and lawyers across the state regarding evidence in court. This is the knowledge and experience you need to take on the insurance company, protect your rights, and get the compensation you deserve.

How We Handle Cases

Once we are involved, we’ll take immediate action. We handle all communications on your behalf and bring the peace of mind that you are not alone dealing with this problem. Our law firm will stop the calls from insurance companies, investigate the facts of your accident, and put together the best legal strategy to maximize your recovery. This may involve interviewing witnesses, consulting medical experts, or preserving other helpful evidence.
