Immediately after being bitten by a dog, make sure you can identify the dog that bit you and get the name and address of the owner if possible. If you have a camera phone or other camera available, take photos of your injuries. If you can safely do so, take photos of the dog as well. You should also report the dog bite to the local police or Animal Control department. Most importantly, be sure to seek medical attention right away as well. Dog bites can cause infection from the bacteria in a dog’s mouth, and, if not properly treated, could lead to serious complications. In severe dog bite cases, wrongful death can tragically occur.
After you have taken care of your immediate medical needs, contact a knowledgeable dog bite attorney. It is important to allow your lawyer to build your case while the extent of your injuries is still obvious and while the facts of the situation are still fresh in your mind.
A dog bite can cause physical and emotional damage for which you deserve compensation. There may be significant medical and plastic surgery expenses following a dog bite injury. As the victim of a dog bite, you should not have to pay the expenses cause by someone else’s pet.
