Dog Bite Attacks
Dogs make great companions, but even the friendliest of dogs may attack in certain situations. Even the most dog loving person might go into shock and lose their composure once bitten unexpectedly by a friendly pet. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, if you are bitten by someone else’s dog, it is important to take the following steps:
- Seek immediate medical attention to treat the would, either at an urgent care facility or emergency room.
- Contact the local authorities – police officers, animal control – explain what happened.
- Take down the owner’s name and information.
- Take down the location and a description of the animal.
Once you have taken the preliminary steps to recovery, it is important to contact an attorney to see what your future options may be. Dog bites often leave lingering pain and symptoms, while dog owners may disappear or get rid of the dog.
