What to Do if You are Bit by a DogIf you are bit by a dog, would you know what to do? Here are some quick tips you should know to keep yourself safe when bit by a dog.

First and foremost, visit a doctor immediately after being bitten to be evaluated. By and large, dog bites could cause serious infection, injury or even death.

Second, hire an attorney experienced with handling dog bite cases to take care of your case. In any case, you will need detailed information about the situation such as a detailed description of the surrounding area where the bite took place, the name and phone number of the dog owner and the names and phone numbers of any witnesses.

Dog Bite Law in Idaho

If you are bit by a dog, would you know what the dog bit law is in the state? Idaho follows the “one bite” rule. The “one bite” rule means an owner will not be held liable for the first time their dog bites unless the owner was aware the dog was dangerous, likely to attack or aggressive. Furthermore, a dog owner needs to be held responsible for the actions of their dog.

Hire an Attorney Right Away

At this point, make sure to hire an experienced dog bit injury attorney to handle your case. Strangely enough, in Idaho, the statute of limitations limits the amount of time available to file a dog bite injury lawsuit. For this reason, hiring an attorney right away is in your best interest to make sure you fall under the state statue of limitations and be able to recall any and all details from the incident.

Damages You Can Recover

Ultimately, some damages you can expect to recover from a dog bite may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages for time off work
  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses
