If you were bitten by a dog, the owner or keeper may be liable for injuries, unless there is evidence of provocation. If you’ve been a victim of dog bites, seek medical attention immediately, and contact the police. Request that the dog be impounded, and the owner contacted to verify whether the dog has had rabies shots.
This information is critical in determining the appropriate medical treatment for your injury. Dog bites can be serious injuries. The dog owner or keeper and his or her insurance companies may be responsible legally to compensate you for the full extent of your injuries, including medical expenses, wage loss, pain, suffering, and disability, including permanent disfigurement.
