What to do when bitten by a dog
Our experienced attorneys can get justice for victims of dog bites
You have been hurt. It was a frightening experience, no matter how small the dog that bit you was. You can't change what happened, but gathering as much information as possible, and acting responsibly, will make proceeding with a dog bite claim easier.
It's important to take the following steps if you or your child was injured by a dog:
- Identify the dog, its owners, and where they live.
- Seek prompt and proper medical attention; ask for copies of all medical documents and records.
- Contact the appropriate police department or animal control office.
- If you can do so without putting yourself at additional risk, photograph the site of the attack and the dog involved as soon as possible.
