Crucial Steps to Take
The majority of dog bite injuries require medical attention to close a wound. Scars are an important part of dog bite claims, as they are considered “damages.” You need to make sure you properly document your injuries to receive the compensation you deserve.
Here is what to keep in mind, if you ever get attacked by a dog:
1. Seek immediate medical treatment.
2. Get photos of injury before (if possible) and immediately after treatment (i.e. at the doctor’s office).
3. Identify the dog and the owner of the dog.
4. Contact the county/city animal control office to determine if there have been previous complaints of the same dog being vicious and/or biting someone else.
5. Contact an attorney who specializes in handling personal injury/dog bite cases.
6. Find the RIGHT lawyer in your area.
