You Need To Contact A Dog Bite Attorney Immediately After A Dog Bite

If you or a family member has been bitten by a dog, cat or other animal, our law firm can help you. We can assist you in getting your medical bills, prescriptions, wage loss and other dog bite related costs and expenses paid or reimbursed to you in a timely manner. Your dog attorney can help you in making any necessary insurance claims and handling your case against the dog or animal owners insurance company.

What To Do After A Dog Bite

Make sure you can identify the dog that bit you because if you can not then you may not be able to make a claim against the dog owner or their homeowners insurance policy to compensate you for your medical expenses, lost wages and to pay for your pain and suffering damages. Also you may have to undergo rabies treatment if the offending dog is a stray that can not be identified, located and quarantined.

Call your local animal control agency and report the dog bite incident so that it will be investigated and to make sure an incident report will be done and obtain a copy of the incident report. Also the animal control agency will issue any citations to the dog owner if any local ordinances were violated such as leash laws, or did not have animal licensed or vaccinations are not current and up to date.

Get the name, address and home, business and cell phone number of the dog owner and any witnesses.

Get medical treatment at a hospital emergency room and if bitten on the face request that you be treated by a plastic surgeon to minimize the risks of permanent scarring from the wounds or sutures. Also be sure to follow the doctors instructions such as taking any prescribed medications and you may be advised to stay out of the sun, use sun block, changes bandages, return to have sutures removed and continue with followup medical care.

Have someone take photos of all your dog bites, wounds, lacerations, bruises and bloody clothing and scene of the dog bite.

You need to obtain insurance information from the dog owner. This would include the name of his or her homeowners insurance company, policy and claim number, address and phone number of the insurance company, and amount of coverage for medical payment expenses (if applicable ) and liability coverage. Further request that the dog owner report the dog bite incident to their homeowners insurance company if they have not done so.

You should not talk with an insurance adjuster or the dog owner about any of the following subjects before consulting with a dog bite attorney: money,  settlement, value of your injuries or anything else dealing with money; do not allow them to record any statements or phone conversations; do not set an appointment to meet with an insurance adjuster; do not allow any photographs of yourself; do not discuss who is responsible for the dog bite incident and do not accept any settlement or money or sign any medical authorizations or releases.

Do consult with an experienced dog attorney to ensure that all necessary evidence is obtained, to review all applicable insurance policies, to make sure all insurance forms are timely filed, to monitor your medical treatment and care and to document and prove the nature and extent of your injuries and losses to the insurance company to maximize your monetary recovery.

If you have been bitten and injured by a dog, cat or other animal, do not do anything that could jeopardize the amount of money you may recover. Please call The Nuebel Law Firm, P.A. promptly at 407-703-5999 for a free, no obligation consultation with an experienced dog bite attorney.
