What is a Dog Bite Accident?

What to do after a dog bite
If you are so unfortunate as to be bitten by a dog, you should seek prompt medical care. If your wounds are not extreme, it is best to go ahead and file a police report. This will serve as documentation of the incident as well as provide an objective third party. If there are other third party witnesses, make sure to get their information as well; they could be very valuable in your lawsuit against the dog owner. After you have gotten a police report, it is best to get medical attention. This can either be from your primary care provider (if their office is open) or from a local emergency room. You may seek compensation for your medical bills, so you should get the best care available. You need to be certain you did not contract any diseases from the dog bite accident.
