How To Proceed After a Dog Attack

Seek emergency medical attention

Being attacked by a dog is a terrible experience and can leave victims traumatized for life. Scars and other permanent damage, even death, are often a result of being attacked by a canine. To help prevent these incidents, The Law Office of Jeremy Rosenthal has compiled this list to help manage the aftermath of a dog bite attack.

Steps to take if You're the Victim of a Dog Attack:

  • Seek medical attention as soon as possible for you or your loved one's well being and to properly document the incident.
  • Photographs should be taken while at the medical facility with the assistance of the care staff to provide visual evidence without causing further injury.
  • A medical professional should rule out the possible need for protection against diseases such as rabies, even in the case of a minor bite.
  • Victims should file a bite report with their local animal control office. In an area where there are none, the Sheriff will take the report. This not only further provides documentation for a legal case but protects any future victims of the same dog by allowing authorities to properly enforce the laws.

Remember, victims are responsible for keeping proper documentation, making the proper report to the authorities, and seeking legal counsel when a dog bite has occurred.
