At the offices of attorney Michael Bowser, personal injury victims will find a dog bite lawyer who knows Massachusetts and New Hampshire animal attack laws and will fight to ensure victims recover the compensation to which they are entitled. Unlike many personal injury lawyers, Attorney Bowser is in his element in the courtroom, and frequently brings cases to a successful verdict when other lawyers would have accepted a much lower pre-trial settlement.

Dog Bite Injuries

Almost 60% of dog bite victims who sustain serious injury are children. Children are easily attracted to animals and are naturally trusting; they may not understand signs of aggression or unsafe behavior when exhibited by a dog. Some experts also believe that children’s high-pitched voices mimic the sounds of wounded prey, inviting a violent reaction from dogs. When anybody is wounded or disfigured by a dog it is unfortunate, but when a child sustains a serious injury or disfigurement the situation is especially tragic.

Some common dog bite injuries are to the face and can leave permanent scarring or disfigurement. Other common dog attack injuries include broken bones, lacerations, severed limbs and even wrongful death. The psychological damage done by a dog attack is often as severe and long-lasting as the physical damage is.
