Looking for a dog attack lawyer in OR or WA state. Todd Peterson has been a dog attack lawyer for over 20 years.
What to do after a dog attack
If a dog’s bite has broken human skin it is best, in our opinion, to report it to the Animal Control Facility in your area.
If the dog is loose they will probably require the owner to pen the dog for several days to make sure they don’t have any diseases like rabies.
This is the quarantine process. It is important to do this after a dog bite in order to protect other people who may get bitten by a dog so the authorities can determine if the dog is dangerous and a continuing threat.
It is also important to do this to protect the health of the person who was bitten.
Evidence in For Your Dog Attack Lawyer
It is especially important to report the dog attack case if there was a serious dog bite injury. This dog bite report will be evidence for the insurance company, and if need be, a jury. The evidence will help you get all the money you deserve for a dog attack claim.
Another way to document the wound is with photos. Be sure to take good pictures of the wound right away and as the wound heals and finally if there is scarring left.
A trip to the doctor is also advised in order to get good evidence of the dog bite. An attorney can help you get good photos of the wound if you are unable to do so yourself.
Liability is often more of an issue in dog attack cases than in car accident cases. Be sure to get the name and address of the owner of the dog as well as the breed of dog.
Also get the name, address and phone number of any witnesses of the event, as well as the information on anyone saying they have seen the dog biting someone else.
If you or your child has been bitten by a dog, don’t talk to anyone until you contact Todd Peterson now.
