Bitten by a Dog? Call (888) 315-0588
Dog bites are extremely common in the United States. According to the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 4.5 million people are
bitten by dogs each year, with about 885,000 people needing medical attention
for their injuries. Nearly half of these cases are children.
Dog owners have a certain amount of liability for their pets in the state
of California, especially if the owner didn’t take proper care to
restrain their dog. If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog due
to its owner’s negligence, you may be able to file a claim for compensation
to help pay for you or your medical bills, pain and suffering, or lost wages.
What should I do after a bite?
After a dog attack, you should act fast to build your case. Dog bites can
lead to serious infections, and you should make sure that your wounds
are treated with the help of a doctor.
After you’ve been bitten, you should:
- Seek medical attention
- Preserve all evidence
- Take any witness statements
- Photograph your wounds
