Our Dog Bite Attorneys Will Help You Recover Damages

As a dog bite victim, you may be entitled to legal damages for your injuries.   You need a Texas law firm that’s more than a flashy TV commercial or a big ad in the Yellow Pages.

There are many important steps to take after suffering a dog bite. When you are bitten by a dog it is very important to first get medical attention. The next step is to check the dog for rabies. Ensure that the dog has been quarantined in order for it to be checked out. Even if the bite or scratch is minor you will want to make sure that the animal is checked for rabies. If you or law enforcement cannot check the animal for rabies you want to ensure that your doctor gives you injections to protect you in case the dog was infected. It is also important to ask the doctor about the possibility of infection.  Dog’s mouths have thousands of germs and many times the infection from the dog bite can be more serious than the dog bite itself. Infections that are left untreated can lead to surgery, amputation or even death.

Next you will want to be sure to get the dog owner’s name, address and homeowner’s insurance policy. In case the injuries you sustain turn out to be serious you will want to be able to locate the owner, their dog and potential homeowner’s insurance policy. It is also important that you report any dog bite or attack to law enforcement or animal control. Be sure to ask animal control, law enforcement or your neighbors if the dog has bitten or attacked anyone before. Many times, this will not be the first time the animal has displayed that sort of behavior.

The next step is to take pictures of your injuries. This is to be able to show animal control, as well as for possible insurance claims. It is also important not to give any recorded statements regarding the attack. The insurance company may use this statement against you later in any negotiations or litigation.

Lastly, if you get bitten by a dog and your injuries are serious, contact a dog bite lawyer today. You may be entitled to have your medical bills, lost wages and other damages reimbursed to you for the dog bite.  Many times this area of the law can be difficult and very hard to understand.  At a minimum, get a consultation by an experienced lawyer that handles dog bite cases.  You may not need to hire an attorney but it is always better to be safe than sorry.
