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.
