When a pit bull, Rottweiler or any other dog or animal attacks someone, the injuries can be extremely serious and require extensive medical and psychological treatment.
Strict liability applies to dog bite injuries.
In New Hampshire and Massachusetts, the first time a dog bites someone, the owner is liable for the damages. There is no need to prove a history of dog bite attacks. There is no "second chance" for the dog. If you have questions about strict liability, talk to a personal injury lawyer at Finbury, Sullivan.
Dog bites and animal attacks cause serious injuries.
A dog bite attack is a frightening experience. The tearing motions and sharp teeth can cause nerve damage, permanent scarring and infection. Worst of all for many victims is the psychological trauma of dog bites. For children or for older victims, the savage memory of dog bites can require extensive therapy. Nerve damage can result in a disfigured face or hands. Scarring can require plastic surgery.
