Dog Bites and other Dog Injuries

Middlesex Dog Bite and Injury Attorney

Millions of Americans are bitten, knocked down or otherwise injured by dogs every year. Worse, victims of the most serious injuries are often children. Fortunately, victims can recover damages to cover medical care, medications, ongoing medical care and rehabilitation, scarring and disfigurement, psychological counseling, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Claims can be made against the owner of the dog, the keeper of the dog (i.e., kennel, caretaker, dog walker, veterinarian etc.), the owner’s or keeper’s insurance companies, and in some circumstances, third parties whose negligence may have been a contributing factor in the injuries.

What should you do if a dog has injured you? Here are some tips:

  • Photograph your injuries, the dog and owner (or keeper) responsible, the dog’s collar and tags, and the area where the attack took place
  • Obtain information from the dog’s owner or keepers concerning the dog’s veterinarian and vaccination history
  • Get medical treatment immediately
  • Contact the police about the incident and request a copy of their report
  • Obtain contact information from the dog’s owner
  • Try to get contact information from witnesses to the attack
  • Save clothing and any other personal items damaged in the attack
