Granite Law Group’s Recent Dog Bite Settlement

Granite Law Group

Our New Hampshire dog bite lawyers and attorneys showed their ability in handling complex dog bite cases with a recent settlement on behalf of a minor child. This case involved a young boy who suffered a serious dog bite at a family friend’s home. The incident ended in severe injuries and highlighted the critical importance of skilled legal representation in dog bite cases.

A Case of Severe Consequences

During a sleepover on January 1, 2022, the young plaintiff encountered the defendant’s Great Dane Mastiff. Surprisingly, despite being familiar with the dog, it brutally attacked the child. The dog caused serious injuries, including wounds to the face and hip, and other serious trauma. These injuries required emergency medical care and surgery and will likely require future plastic surgery.

New Hampshire Dog Bite Law: RSA 466:19

In New Hampshire, responsibility for dog bites is clear under RSA 466:19. This law holds dog owners responsible for damages caused by their pets. This law forms the foundation of our approach in seeking justice for victims of dog bites. Experienced New Hampshire dog bite attorneys must be familiar with this provision.

The complexities of dog bite cases, particularly in light of specific state laws like New Hampshire’s RSA 466:19, underscore the importance of having experienced dog bite lawyers on your side. Consequently, in this case, our team navigated the intricacies of state law, insurance policy limits, and the profound medical implications for our client. Our expertise ensured a settlement that fully covered the child’s extensive medical expenses, and accounted for his pain, suffering, and future needs.

Dealing with Insurance Companies:

Often, dog bite claims involve negotiating with homeowners’ insurance companies. Experienced dog bite lawyers can secure settlements that accurately reflect the severity of the injuries and the victim’s future needs.

Maximizing Compensation:

Skilled attorneys can ensure that the insurance companies fully compensate victims for their damages. Damages can include medical bills, emotional trauma, and future care needs.

Guidance Through the Legal Processes:

From case evaluation to negotiating settlements or representation in court, skillful attorneys guide victims through every step of the process.

Reflecting this, our successful settlement in this case is a testament to our commitment to providing compassionate, skilled legal assistance to those affected by such traumatic events. Our expertise in handling the complexities of dog bite cases ensures that our clients receive the justice and compensation they deserve.
