What Do I Do after a Dog Bite?
First: Seek immediate medical attention after a dog attack. Dog bites can result in serious infections, lacerations, scars and penetrating wounds that may require multiple stitches or surgery. An aggressive mauling or attack by more than one dog can even result in a wrongful death.
Second: Call the police and report the incident. Do not attempt to confront the owner of the dog. Owners of vicious animals will often become defensive and try to lay blame on the victim. They may even become aggressive themselves.
Third: Call an experienced dog bite lawyer. A personal injury lawyer will help ensure that you receive compensation for serious injuries and damages. Our legal team is prepared to:
- Investigate the dog owner to determine if they were negligent in the handling or care of the dog.
- Gather and document evidence by taking photos of the victims injuries, compiling information regarding the attack and collecting copies of medical reports for future examination.
- Negotiate with an insurance company for the best possible settlement to cover injuries and also, loses.
