Immediately after a dog bite it is important to know what to do to benefit your health as well as help any legal action that may need to be taken. The dog bite attorneys at Brent Gordon Law have handled many dog bite cases. Our dog attack attorneys understand the necessary steps to take to make sure a dog bite victim receives a fair settlement. There are also some things you need to know in case you or a loved one is bitten by a dog.
Immediately After a Dog Bite
There are several reasons a dog may bite such as a puppy teething or a dog defending his territory. No matter the reason, if it is a significant injury the owner needs to be held responsible. Follow these simple steps immediately after a dog bite for your safety.
- Seek medical attention immediately. If you are losing a lot of blood, call 911 immediately.
- When possible, find out the kind of dog that bit you as well as who the owner is. Knowing the dog owner can help determine if you will need rabies shots.
- See a doctor or visit the emergency room if necessary. Not every dog bite needs immediate attention. However, it is never a bad idea just to be safe. Approximately 15 percent of dog bite wounds become infected.
- Gather the contact information of anyone who may have witnessed the dog bite. Their testimonial could help with your case later.
- Follow your doctor’s instructions to heal properly.
- Do not talk to the insurance company of the dog owner or discuss who was responsible for the dog bite with the dog owner.
