New Hampshire has a strict law concerning dog bites which protects you and your loved ones in the event that you were bitten by a dog and sustain serious personal injury.

If you or someone you know has been bitten or attacked by a dog you may need a personal injury lawyer. Rice Law Office can provide you with the help you need to recover from your injuries.
Being bitten or attacked by a dog is a terrifying experience and can leave the victim with both physical and psychological injuries. In addition to scarring and emotional distress, victims are likely to incur expensive medical bills and may even lose time from work. If you or a family member has been bitten by a dog, it is important to seek medical attention immediately, and if you can, gather as much information as possible about the dog, its owners and any witnesses. Bring all this information along with any photos or paperwork you have when you consult with your injury attorney and keep in mind, it's better not to speak with the owner's insurance company representative until you've had the opportunity to discuss your rights and obligations with experienced counsel. A personal injury attorney can help you determine the best way to proceed in order to protect your rights and in order to get the coverage you deserve.
