What to Do After Being Bitten by a Dog
SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION
AND GATHER EVIDENCE
No matter how badly you were hurt, you should go to the doctor to get examined. On the scene, you or a loved one should gather evidence to support your claim, including pictures, witness statements, medical expenses accrued later on, and lost wages.
REPORT THE INCIDENT
TO LOCAL AUTHORITIES
Check your municipality’s dog bite laws and contact the nearest animal control office. They have the authority to test the dog for rabies, issue citations against the owner and order them to muzzle the dog, and remove the dog from the area for observation.
SPEAK TO AN ATTORNEY
AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
Although this may seem fairly simple, your insurance adjuster or the owner of the dog can take advantage of the fact that you don’t have an attorney. Call us so we can make sure your rights are protected and fight for fair compensation for your pain and suffering.
