What Steps Should I Take Following a Dog Attack?

The first thing you should do after a dog attack is to seek medical attention. If possible, you should also speak with authorities while the incident is fresh in your memory, so you can document the attack in a police report. You should also collect contact information for the dog owner and any witnesses at the scene. Ask someone else to do it for you if you’re unable to do so because of your injuries.

The next step is to contact a qualified lawyer. Although you can try to fight the insurance company on your own, you simply don’t have the leverage to negotiate a fair settlement — and they know it. The Ruth Law Team has the knowledge and experience to build a strong case and fight for maximum compensation on your behalf.
