Ready To Hold Negligent Dog Owners Accountable

Everyone who owns or controls a dog has a responsibility to keep that dog from injuring another person. Every day, children and adults suffer serious and permanent injuries and scarring because the owner of a dog failed to control it around other people.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a dog attack, turn to me, attorney Dan Duckett. Since 1994, I’ve helped clients throughout New Hampshire protect their rights and hold negligent individuals accountable. I am ready to help you fight for the full compensation that you deserve.

The Lasting Effects Of A Dog Bite Injury

The damage of a dog bite is both physical and emotional. Initially, the bite causes intense pain, blood loss, and ripped and torn skin. After the initial treatment, the victim has to determine if the dog had received its rabies shots. If the dog had not received its rabies shot, or the owner is not sure, the victim of the bite has to undergo painful rabies shots.

Over the next few weeks, after the initial healing, the injured person now faces the prospect of treatments with a plastic surgeon in an effort to limit or prevent permanent scarring. Despite such treatment, injuries from a dog bite often result in lifelong scars.

The Emotional Impact Of An Attack

In addition to the physical suffering, victims of a dog bite often endure emotional distress. This can include nightmares or an inability to fall asleep and a fear of all dogs.

When young children are hurt by an aggressive dog, it can take extensive counseling to overcome this horrendous event. Personal injury compensation may be used to cover counseling costs so that victims can receive the skilled care that they require.
