Do I Have To Prove That the Dog Bit Me In Order To Get Damages?

No. New Hampshire law does not require an actual bite, just injuries. There was a recent case in the New Hampshire Supreme Court in which a victim was frightened by an attacking dog, which resulted in the victim falling off their bike and getting hurt. The New Hampshire Supreme Court held that the dog bite statute does not require an “actual bite or other direct physical contact.”
