Two steps you should take after a dog bite are to seek medical help and talk to a lawyer.
Why You Should Seek Medical Help
Infection is one of the most worrisome risks of a dog bite. Beyond rabies, potential dog bite infections include tetanus, staph infection, and more. If a dog bit you, there is a risk of developing an infection, so see a doctor right away.
Seeing a doctor also helps connect any injuries you suffered to the dog bite incident. This can be important later if you file a dog bite claim or lawsuit.
Why You Should Talk to a Lawyer
If a dog bit you, you may have medical bills and other expenses related to the incident. And you may miss work to treat your injuries and get medical care. In the most severe cases, you may be unable to perform former job duties, which may require you to take a lower-paying job.
You deserve compensation for those damages, so talk to a dog bite lawyer who can help you take legal action.
Many homeowner’s insurance policies cover dog bites, so if you pursue a legal case against a dog owner, the owner’s homeowner’s or renter’s policy may cover the damages.
