At Cullenberg & Tensen, P.L.L.C., we know firsthand that a dog bite injury is a serious matter. Certain dog breeds have unbelievably powerful jaws that can serious injury in just a few quick seconds.
Dog bites to the face, neck, and head may be fatal or cause disfigurement. Dog bite victims may need extensive medical care, including reconstructive surgery or emergency surgery to repair broken arteries. Excessive blood loss may lead to symptoms of shock, trauma, and even death. Some of the more common types of canines we see involved in attacks include:
Pit Bull Terriers
It is sometimes the seemingly mild-mannered animals that attack, especially if allowed out of their normal habitat or comfort zone. Under the wrong circumstances, any type of dog may be capable of causing serious harm.
Dog Owner Responsibility
Vermont and New Hampshire laws require dog owners to take responsibility for the safety of others in the presence of their dogs. In other words, dog owners may be held responsible for financial compensation if their dog inflicts serious personal injury on you or your loved one.
In the majority of dog bite cases we handle, the owners of the animals are directly responsible for the damage done. If the dog owner has homeowners’ insurance, your dog bite injuries will generally be covered. If a dog is in the care of a person who is not the owner, the caretaker may be held responsible for injuries resulting from a bite.
