WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU'RE ATTACKED BY A DOG

If you are attacked by a dog, the dog’s owner is likely to be legally liable for your injury. The following is an important list of what you should do if you’re attacked by a dog:

1. Get the names and phone numbers of the dog’s owner and witnesses. Even if you don’t think you’ll be asking for any liability, get the dog owner’s name and address. You may change your mind the next day, when latent injury may show up.
2. Get any witnesses’ names. You may need them to back up your version of what happened if you and the dog’s owner later disagree.
3. Get medical attention if you need it. If your injury is serious enough to require medical attention, seek one immediately. Keep records of doctor’s office or hospital visits and copies of bills. The more thorough you are with your documentation, the more likely the chance of getting reimbursed for your medical expenses.
4. Report the incident to animal control authorities. This is especially important if the dog wasn’t wearing a license tag and you don’t know who owns it.
