What To Do After a Dog Bite

Posted on 05/24/2014Back

Dog bite injuries are often more serious than victims initially think. The internal injuries that can result from a dog bite are not always immediately obvious, but they need to be caught and treated promptly. Additionally, rabies and infections can result from a dog bite.

GoldenbergLaw’s Minnesota personal injury attorneys always urge the victims of dog bites to take the attack seriously. You should take a few steps to protect your health and your legal rights after a serious dog bite:

  • Seek medical attention immediately
  • Calmly speak to the dog’s owner to get information about the dog’s age, breed, shot record and any health problems
  • Report the attack to your local animal control department so they can make a record
  • Speak to GoldenbergLaw’s personal injury attorneys about the attack

These are relatively simple steps, but they will go a long way toward keeping you healthy while preserving your ability to pursue justice and compensation for the attack.

Speaking with us at an initial consultation is completely free and doesn’t obligate you to any course of action.

If you’re a Minnesota resident who has suffered a dog bite attack, you should speak to our personal injury attorneys immediately. Please contact GoldenbergLaw today for a free consultation.
