A dog bit me or my family member, what should I do?

If you or a family member find yourself victim to dog bite, you should visit a doctor and seek medical treatment for any injuries. Be proactive about receiving a proper diagnosis and adequate treatment, even if it seems like a mild injury. Dog bites can look minor but result in serious internal injuries.

The next step is opening a claim with the dog owner’s insurance carrier. Many homeowners’ insurance policies cover the cost of medical treatment and other losses that result from a dog bite. If you have been injured, seek the representation of an attorney before providing a statement to another party.
