What should I do after a dog bite injury?
You may be asking yourself, “What do I do after I’ve been injured by a dog?” You need to let the dog owner know that you’ve been injured. After a Dog BiteTell them and any other witnesses that you’ve been injured. If you have your cell phone handy, take photographs of the dog and of the person who is with the dog whether it’s the owner of the dog or just the person who’s walking the dog. We have to preserve evidence.
Sadly, in dog bite cases, we often see that the injuries are so severe that the person can’t even do those basic things. The most important thing that you can do is to get medical treatment quickly. Hopefully, there’s a witness who can help us establish exactly what has happened to help us identify the dog and the dog’s owner.
