Dog Bites

Contact A Lawyer Who Will Hold Pet Owners Responsible For Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bites can cause immediate harm as well as lasting damages. The physical and emotional scarring can last a lifetime. Dog bite injuries are serious. When a pit bull, Rottweiler or any other breed attacks someone, the injuries can include gouging, infection, nerve damage and scarring. Victims often tell us that the worst injuries are the psychological scars that endure long after the animal attack.

The aftermath of a dog bite can be overwhelming, involving both physical pain and emotional trauma. Our legal proficiency encompasses a wide array of issues related to dog bites, such as:

  • Securing compensation for medical expenses and rehabilitation costs
  • Negotiating for psychological counseling and therapy
  • Pursuing damages for pain, suffering, and emotional distress
  • Addressing long-term care for scarring and disfigurement

The lawyers at Boynton, Waldron, Doleac, Woodman & Scott, P.A., in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, can help victims obtain compensation for the damages you have suffered. At our law firm, you can count on working with an experienced attorney who understands the seriousness of dog bite injuries. It helps to have a personal injury lawyer who will not allow you to be pressured, who will protect your rights and who will be able to assess the full amount you will need for recovery.

There is no question about it: Dog bites are subject to strict liability. That means the owner is responsible for controlling the dog and for whatever injuries the dog causes. When a child or adult is attacked by a dog, the victim is not to blame.

Do not let anyone minimize the damages. The insurance company or the dog’s owner may tell you the injuries are not serious. Their goal is a quick, low-cost settlement. Do not feel pressured to settle. Make sure you know the full extent of damages and understand how much your medical and psychological treatment will cost. Scarring and nerve damage can require multiple surgeries over time. Psychological therapy takes time and patience.

Have a personal injury attorney on your side. We know how damaging a dog attack can be. Most victims are vulnerable, small children or elderly people. They need and deserve fair compensation. Whatever the age of the person is, we are committed to helping them recover fair compensation after a dog bite attack.

The initial consultation is free for dog bite cases and all personal injury cases. The attorneys at Boynton, Waldron, Doleac, Woodman & Scott, P.A., represent clients. Our legal team understands the seriousness of your injuries and will fight for a fair and just settlement.

We represent clients in New Hampshire, Maine, and northern Massachusetts. Regardless of the legal problem, you can benefit from the experience that comes from a century of service to our community.
