Dog Attack & Bite Injury Attorney

Have You Been Bitten by a Dog?

According to a survey conducted by the Center for Disease Control there are more than 74.8 million dogs in the United States.  Surprisingly, more than 4.7 million people every single year are bitten.  Children are particularly prone to this injury.  A dog attack or a bite injury can be a very traumatic experience and you may not know what actions to take.  If you are the victim of this type of injury, you will want to consult in a personal injury attorney right away.

What Should You Do After a Dog Bite Attack?

dog-bite-injuries-warning-signBe sure to seek medical attention as soon as possible.  Dog attacks and bites can lead to infection; therefore, a doctor should be consulted.  Depending on the severity of the attack, an ambulance may be needed to tend to the wounds.

Be sure to have pictures taken of the attack and injury. Photograph all visible wounds and the clothing that is torn or damaged.  If it is possible, take pictures of the dog and the location, too. You should try to identify the dog that inflicted the injury and attacked you.  Be sure to locate the owner as quickly as possible. The owner’s identity is crucial, because it is the owner who is held responsible in these cases. 

The attack should also be reported to the local animal control. You should provide a description of the animal and of the owner. If the dog was a stray, give the best description you can and the location of the attack.
