What Should I Do After a Dog Bite Injury?
Dog bites can involve serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dog bite, the absolute first thing you should do is seek medical treatment. The dog bite victim’s health is the paramount consideration. If the victim needs immediate medical attention, someone should call an ambulance. After medical treatment has been sought, it is important to photograph the injuries. This can help with the processing of your claim to make sure you obtain the compensation you deserve. You also want to make sure that all the pertinent information is gathered from the dog’s owner. This might involve specific information about the dog such as its breed, age, history of treatment, history of behavior and other potential information. You will also want information about the owner such as their address, name, and insurance policy information. After all of this, we recommend reporting the dog bite to the relevant authorities such as the health department. Lastly, you need to consult with a dog bit attorney immediately to make sure you understand all of your legal rights and have representation in resolving any legal claims.
