NH Dog Bites – With good weather for running, walking or bike riding will come an increase in dog bites. The number is staggering because the Center for Disease Control and Prevention says that there are 4,500,000 dog bites each year and most victims are children.
Insurance Claims for Dog Bites
State Farm Insurance covers millions of homeowners and they reported paying over 3,600 claims for a total of $121 million. While they don’t track dog bites by breed, some other insurers will not cover pit bulls or a dog that has bitten just once before.
If you do not have homeowner’s liability insurance your assets are at risk because many face or leg attacks can lead to expensive plastic surgery to minimize the scarring from a dog bite.
Every year our law office handles dog bite cases to obtain a fair settlement for our clients.
Get Your Dog Trained
If you think you have a biter you should get the dog properly trained and leashed when outside. Many of the victims are friends, neighbors or family members like grandchildren.
