What Should I Do after a Dog Bite?

Dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets. Thus, when their dogs bite and injure others, owners may be responsible for those injuries. After receiving medical treatment, dog bite victims should seek the help of an experienced dog bite lawyer, especially if they have suffered:

  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Nerve damage
  • Rabies infection

These conditions may require significant medical attention. More importantly, they may permanently disable or disfigure dog bite victims, in addition to leaving them with serious psychological trauma.

Pet owners should be held accountable when their animals attack innocent people.
