Dog bites can be disfiguring, and they can also be deadly. Bites can also cause emotional trauma. You need to know what to do after you or someone you love is the victim of a dog attack. It is important to understand laws on dog bites and to pursue a claim to recover compensation. Seeking assistance from a dog bite attorney is often necessary. Brandon L. Lettunich, Attorney at Law can help if you have a claim against the dog's owner.
What to Do When You Suffer Dog Bites
Victims of dog bites should make sure they get information from the dog's owner. This includes contact details and proof of a current rabies vaccination. If the dog has not been vaccinated for rabies, a quarantine may be required. Euthanizing the dog is also an option. This will determine if the animal has rabies and you may need a rabies shot. You should also contact law enforcement and/or animal control to report the bite incident and you should get prompt medical attention as dog bites often require extensive treatment.
Be sure to tell your doctor to document all of the treatment you receive and to document the full extent of injuries. You may also wish to have pictures of the bite injuries taken so you can prove the extent of damage. This will help you to make a case against the dog's owner and to be awarded full and fair compensation for your losses and damages the dog bite has caused you.
