Dog Bites – The First 24 Hours

If you’ve read this much, there is a good chance you or a family member has been bitten by a dog and you are debating whether or not to hire a lawyer. First and foremost, if you haven’t seen a doctor or gone to a hospital yet, do so immediately; even if the bite seems insignificant. Not only will you head off any potential diseases or infections, you will have hard and fast proof that you sought medical attention following the attack. This can be a serious point of contention later, such as during a settlement or suit. So if you haven’t gone to see a physician or clinic yet, do it now! Secondly, along with contacting a doctor or hospital you’ll want to speak with the police as soon as possible. Immediately following the bite while at the scene is the best case scenario, or at the hospital immediately thereafter. The officer’s report can be of great use should you take legal action against the dog owner. Third, personal injury suits are usually won by proving negligence. One way you can help to make this happen is by collecting as much physical, photographic and documented evidence as possible. Take photos of where the bite took place, the dog itself, the owner, injuries and in general, the entire scene. If anyone witnessed the act, be sure to get their name and contact information. Above all, try to get as much information about the dog and its owner as you can. Getting their information could be the cornerstone of a successful case.
